The Urban Almanac was founded in 1998, as a new take on the traditional general store. Our mission has always been to blend functional & unique design, at a reasonable price, and not be limited to any product or category. Hence the General Store moniker. We’ve never dared to be different or try something new.

The journey led us to found Tasha Tea in 2012. Our collection of all-natural premium loose leaf teas blended in Canada was a hit. so …. in 2014, we added coffee. Good People, our in-house coffee roastery, offers light to dark, decaf & barrel aged organic beans. Our in-store cafe serves specialty drinks.
