Canada's number 1 e-commerce platform for stone remnants

About Us

The Beginning was born in 2019 when our team helped solve a warehouse spacing problem for a Winnipeg Stone Fabricator due to its massive and never-ending remnant stone accumulation.


Our company has since grown Canada-wide, acting as a bridge to consumers and manufacturers. We provide an e-commerce platform for remnant sellers, and help people spend less on buying customizable stones or pre-made stone products.
