A big welcome to the neighbouring communities to come and visit Coombs, still vibrant and active into the winter months. All shops and the Old Country Market remain open daily. The free admission Coombs Museum is also open but only weekends (Friday through Sunday from 12 noon until 4 p.m.) This museum is located next door to the historic Coombs General Store and Post Office. The store provides a great adventure for shoppers with necessary staples available, gift items and an unbelievable candy section for those with a sweet tooth.
Visitors to the museum will enjoy a peek into the town’s 100-year-old past and be able to take home some Christmas Good Cheer from the free Christmas Holly Box. The red-berried prickly holly, a lovely natural Christmas decoration of nature’s, has been a traditional good luck symbol dating back to the town’s British heritage as a Salvation Army Colony named after the salvation army officer, Commissioner Thomas Bales Coombs, originally of London, England. A free heritage post card of Coombs will also be available to museum visitors.
