Discover the history of Reids from 1948 to 1971 to Today


Since 1948, Reids has been a local destination and tradition to many in the Cambridge community and beyond. Originally a specialty nut shop, Reids began to offer handmade chocolates and confections after husband and wife, Tom and Kathy Drew-Smith, gained ownership in 1971. Now owned and operated by brother and sister team, Ted Drew-Smith and Carrie Peart, Reids continues to move forward with the family tradition of great customer service and quality products. In 2018, Reids marked its 70th year with its largest expansion to date. In addition to its flagship store on Ainslie Street North in Downtown Cambridge (Galt), you can now also find Reids locations on Elgin Street South in Cambridge (Galt) and The Old Quebec Street Mall in Downtown Guelph. No matter which Reids location you visit, we will always aspire to be the place to 'celebrate life’s moments'.

It’s Not Christmas Without Reids Chocolate For generations, Reids Chocolate has been a family tradition of both its customers and its owners. With community at the core, Christmas traditions, and every season holding its own kind of magic, Reids is so much more than chocolate—it’s people and a place that brings the community together. See the history of this spirit for yourself !

1948 REIDS STARTS AS A NUT SHOP OVER 70 YEARS AGO. THAT’S NUTS! In 1935, Raymond Gibney founded his first nut shop in Kitchener. By 1955, Raymond had

1960

a number of locations spread across Southern

THE FAMILY BUSINESS

Ontario. Our store, originally located on Main

CHANGED HANDS.

Street as a Raymond’s Nut Shop, was opened in 1948.

In 1960, Hugh and Isabelle Reid became the new owners on Main Street where they continued operations for the next 11 years.

1971 TOM AND KATHY DREW-SMITH PURCHASE THE SHOP AND KEPT THE NAME In 1971, when the store moved to the south side of Main Street, Tom and Kathy purchased the business. Reids began to offer their own handmade chocolates and confections 7 years later, in 1978. We're celebrating 50 years of ownership in the family!

1980s THE TORTOISE CAME OUT OF HIS SHELL The infamous Tortoise arrived on the scene to grace the taste buds of all who tried one. Pecans smothered in caramel and covered in milk or dark chocolate, our Signature Tortoise has been a must try ever since. (And don't forget the Wannabes!) In 1981, the Drew-Smiths relocated Reids to Ainslie Street: this year marks 40 years!

Today THE TRADITIONS PREVAIL Reids remains an important part of many family traditions, both at Christmas and throughout the year. From the past to the

2000s THE CURRENT REIDS TEAM TOOK OWNERSHIP Brother and sister team, Ted Drew-Smith and Carrie Peart, took over the business from their parents, keeping Reids in their family. In 2018, Reids expanded and opened a new factory along with two store locations in Cambridge and Guelph.

Right - The dynamic duo Doreen Fraser and Marion Light, who set the standards high for Reids circa 1982 Left - Young Carrie hard at work, current co-owner

present, and looking to the future, Reids will always be here to celebrate life’s moments.
