Good Morning Diane: I am now back in Ontario from 3 glorious weeks in the Gaspe Coast and since I did not know the exact answer to your question, I contacted the store. They told me that they will be open for visitors from October 1st - 13th, 2018, but for only half a day and it was not specified if that half day would be in the morning or in the afternoon. You can contact them at (418) 782-2225. I hope that helps and have a wonderful time in Gaspe!!!!
