The sidewalk in front of the new Oak Bay Ave. location is being replaced. This is good. Before it was a jumbled mess of concrete planters and steps at different levels.

Yes, they yanked out the trees last week.

Red Barn Markets in Victoria | West Saanich, Mattick's Farm, Vanalman, Colwood

 

Maybe Oak Bay Avenue should be added to the title of this thread.

Right, the store is in Victoria not Oak Bay, even though their banner emphasizes Oak Bay.

It is on Oak Bay Ave still however... close enough. 

 

I will probably be abandoning Save On and Fairways, Casey's Market always comes first however.

Yeah I guess so but why the "|" then, symbolize construction?

Hmm, I didn't realize we hadn't included the OB Ave location in the heading. Perhaps at this point it's best to just get rid of the individual locations altogether. The "I" is the character above the enter key shared with the backward slash ( \ ) which symbolizes a break in the text.

I agree.

Red Barn Markets would cover all of them, just in case they open another one.

It's mailing address should still be "Victoria", but maybe just "Red Barn Markets" and drop Victoria to clear up any potential confusion.

Victoria refers to the entire region, not just the City of Victoria. That's the nomenclature we use for chain restaurants or businesses with more than 2-3 locations.

Are you ignoring the small Ave. on the sign? Oak Bay Ave does not mean Oak Bay.

 My comment was that the banner emphasized the Oak Bay by making the Ave a smaller font size.

This is probably to appeal to shoppers who would rather shop right in Oak Bay than just outside the boundary in Victoria. :)

90%* of Victorians have no idea where the border is, I'm sure it makes no difference.

I believe it's meant to be a street sign on the banner.

.....But why green and not blue...why not red
