Amber Marshall, who stars as Amy Fleming on the CBC series Heartland, has opened a country-lifestyle themed retail store in the town of Turner Valley.
Marshall’s Country Store, located at 146 Main St., carries men's, women's and children’s clothing and accessories, gifts and home decor with a distinctive country-chic style.
Local artisans are featured, as well as clothing and other items from the Amber Marshall collection.
On July 30, fans and supporters gathered outside the store for a grand opening celebration.
“Welcome to the first-ever brick-and-mortar Amber Marshall store, Marshall’s Country Store,” Marshall said to those in attendance.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held during the grand opening, and a video was posted on YouTube. In the video, Marshall thanked those in attendance and said she was overwhelmed by the support.
“I really appreciate all of the support from all of you who came out today, and just made this even more special than it already is,” she said.
She then cut the red ribbon with a pocketknife, officially opening the store as cheers rose from the crowd.
Heartland, the award-winning series that premiered in 2007, is now in its 16th season. Much of the filming for the series is done in the Foothills area.
