About Us

Our Story

Personalized by Santa has been a long-standing staple in the community as a family-run establishment. With the team sharing an inherited passion for Christmas. 

 Growing up in Markstay in the 1950s, Roddy worked for his Dad’s local grocery store, bus line, gas station and butcher shop. The entrepreneur spirit was already in his DNA from a young age. After meeting his wife Yoko, he moved to Sudbury in 1997 and opened up his first Personalized by Santa location in the new sudbury shopping centre.

Now, the next generation is taking the helm, bringing fresh energy and ideas to our beloved brand. Roddy and Yoko, proud grandparents to several and counting, are excited to see the family legacy continue to thrive. Our store is expanding, with a vibrant online presence and new product lines that focus on personalized gifts.

At Personalized by Santa, we are dedicated to turning every day into Christmas, spreading joy and festive spirit through our unique and heartfelt products.


God Bless,
Portelance Family
