Love Local, PEI: Island Stone Pub
Devon Bernard our Love Local, PEI ambassador was in Kensington visiting the Island Stone Pub located at the old train station! Husband and wife, Eric and Jamie are the owners of this unique pub and Devon had the chance to talk with Jaime about the business. Follow along with Devon’s interview below to learn more about how the Island Stone pub started and what your support means to them!
Devon: Tell me who you are and what your business is?
Jamie: Hi, I’m Jamie. My Husband Eric Zehr and I are the proud owner operators of the Island Stone Pub in Kensington, Prince Edward Island.
Devon: Why do you think it’s important to support local businesses?
Jamie: I believe in supporting local because our farmers, fishers, growers and brewers are our customers and we are your customers, and together we can grow as a community.
Devon: What’s something you would like people to know about your business?
Jamie: Our tiny little pub is situated inside a national historic site, the Kensington Train Station that was built in 1904. Fun fact, are little kitchen use to be the ticket office for the train station when it was operating as a train station. Our pub area was the gentleman’s waiting room, and are dining room was the waiting room for the women and children.
