The History of NONIA in Newfoundland

There’s some construction going on in downtown St. John’s right now, but the store owners want you to know, they are open for business. This got me to thinking about the stores that have been downtown for quite a while, and one of those stores is NONIA. You may know NONIA as just a store  that sells beautiful handmade sweaters, but there’s actually a rich history behind it.
