Pineridge Hollow owner Jan Regehr likens her growing business to her burgeoning gardens. What began in 1992 as a small shop selling hard-to-find collectibles on the property of her country home has grown organically to today’s picturesque shopping, dining, and event destination. The drive from Winnipeg is pretty, and just long enough to escape urban bustle. Six acres of winding garden paths and playhouses made from growing sunflowers reaffirm the rural ambience. Meanwhile, inside the carriage house store, indoor and outdoor furniture, home accessories and gifts tempt a variety of aesthetic tastes. In the kitchen, dishes start closer to home and Manitoba produce and products flavour each bite of the menu. Reflecting on her business acumen Regehr says, “I listen to what people are interested in. I have an ability to see opportunities; it took awhile for me to realize not everyone is like that.” Off Hwy 59, east on Garven Rd , 204-777‑3882.
