Our Shop's History

Stan’s Dad and Lad Shop was founded by Stan Gibson in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia in 1955. In the early 1960s, Jim Myra went to work for Stan and after completing high school he joined the shop full time. Over the next 40 years Jim realized his passion of working with and helping people look their best and in 2000 Jim bought the business from Stan.

In 2000, Jim’s son Jamie Myra joined the team along with Joan Feener. Joan worked with Stan and Jim for over 30 years and was as recognizable as both Jim and Stan in the shop.

Over the next few years Jamie learned the business inside and out from the two seasoned veterans, and is now the shop’s main purchaser, corporate specialist, and business manager. Jamie has branched out the business to include outfitting corporate and sports teams as well as individual orders.

Joan retired in 2003 and Valerie Whynacht joined the team as their Tuxedo specialist - so when you are looking to tie the knot, know Valerie is here for you. Valerie brags to people that the reason she was originally hired is because she is a Toronto Maple Leafs fan and both Jim and Jamie won’t deny that possibility!! 

You will also get to see Judy (Jim's wife and Jamie's mom) in the shop from time to time as she works part time throughout the year in the family business.

Jim, Jamie and Valerie are working during this pandemic to provide outstanding service to customers by allowing individuals to shop by appointment. You can text or email for an appointment: 902-212-0048 or jamiemyra@eastlink.ca.
