My husband bought something for his sister last year at the Irish Linen store. The lady told him she did a lot of mail order, sent up a box full of stuff to a different store in Kelowna. Also one of her biggest sellers was a brand of Irish tea.
I worked in the MEC building for a short while when it was the Ministry of Forest, 1984/85. We moved there from the Mosaic Building. It was freezing upstairs.
