In 1996, Colonial Acres Coins set up their first permanent location at 300 Victoria St. North in Kitchener. Bevers manned the storefront, while Sandham worked part time while finishing his degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Waterloo. It wasn't long before the business outgrew the small store, and they expanded into the unit next door, and eventually the one next to that. In 1998, Colonial Acres Coins joined the growing online shopping world, and started the website colonialacres.com. Today, the website still commands a large portion of our business.
