Mike Buckley

Celebrating the life of Mike Buckley

Posted August 2, 2023

It is with deep sadness that we must announce the loss of one of our own, Michael Buckley. Mike lost his very brief battle with cancer over the weekend. We are devasted. Mike played an important part at Cabot, running our Storage Division, with a focus on the Rousseau Metal product line. Mike had that special touch when it came to dealing with his customers and his co-workers. We are going to miss him terribly.

In honour of Mike, we will be closing Cabot on Tuesday, August 8th, to attend his Celebration of Life. We will reopen Wednesday morning, August 9th, at 8 a.m.

Cabot's 50th Anniversary Monthly Draw

Posted January 31, 2023

To celebrate Cabot’s 50th year in business, we will be holding a monthly draw for a $100 gift card to a local Nova Scotia restaurant.


To win, the customer must meet the following requirements:

  • Must hold an account with Cabot.
  • Must have made a minimum order of a $100 within the last month from Cabot


  • A draw will be held on the 3rd day of each month starting in February, 2023.
  • The draws will be comprised of all invoice numbers from the previous month. (ie. the draw on February 3rd will include all invoice numbers issued in January, 2023).
  • We will use a random number generator online to pick the winner.
  • If the winner chosen does not have an account with Cabot, or the order is under $100, the invoice number will be redrawn until a winner is picked that meets the requirements.


The prize for the winner of the draw will be $100 gift card to a local, Nova Scotia restaurant, chosen by Cabot. Cabot may provide a set of restaurant options to the winner.
