About Us

Lasting Impressions is a gift shop located in the historical village of Manotick within Ottawa.
In Sept 2006, Gina Petrocco purchased the Lasting Impressions business from the retiring couple. The store was a dream Gina had for a number of years.
At the time of purchase Lasting Impressions was ready for an influx of new ideas and energy. Gina has put her stamp on the look and feel of the store.
Lasting Impressions now provides a WOW factor to every visitor to the store.

We continually look for new, unique gifts found locally, Canada, Americas and International.
