Meet Matilda Henry & Chuck Lucas
“Bella Coola has a sense of community,” said Chuck, “and I appreciate how everyone supports each other.” The small town is friendly with greetings and smiles exchanged when you are out and about around town. He notices that everyone that lives here “belongs” here and there is a unity to the community. “Smawtislq’ilh,” said Chuck who explains that his late father in law, Nuxalk Elder Simon Schooner taught him, “one heart, one mind.” Bella Coola is Chuck’s home and he feels connected to it and to the people.
Chuck, together with his late wife Julia Lucas and their daughter Matilda Henry, opened House of Comfort Gourmet Coffee and Tea Shop in Bella Coola. He wanted to independently provide for his family and has enjoyed owning and operating the family business. Chuck is really proud of the friendly atmosphere that the customers often comment on.
An advantage of doing business in a small town is that you can really get to know your customers and receive their honest input on how to improve and serve the whole community. The House of Comfort Gourmet Coffee and Tea Shop always feels like “home” with “friends” walking through the door to spend some time in the pleasant atmosphere that Chuck and his family have created.
