oh so it's H-Mart going into the toys r us location. people were right in that it was going to be an asian grocer going in there, just didn't know who it would be. 

 

it's opening in November. i wonder what kind of store it is. T&T was a good guess though

Costco Langford has removed all the plexiglass from their checkout tills.

Have any other grocery stores or retailers removed them too.

I think as far as Asian grocery stores go it would be considered lower tier. Reviews aren't great but prices are low. It will be a destination given its focus so Mayfair is a good spot for it.

Hopefully the Woodward’s Food Floor is coming back soon after the renovation.

IIRC back in the day it was the first or one of few food stores to accept credit cards.

when i saw their flyers it look kind of expensive but i guess it's a grocery store for the mayfair mall area since all malls has one anchor grocery store

 I see H-Mart advertises Spam .I’d like to know why it is popular in Asian food stores .  How is it used .Spam was something my mom bought because  she was a broke single parent. It was right up there with  the mystery chicken loaf sandwich meat  . I later had an elaborate habitrail hamster house for my teddy bear hamster who’s name was Spam .  Not something I’d search out to buy these days .

I know a guy that has fried spam a couple of times a week. He was a manager for Hormel, so maybe it's just brand loyalty.


Life's a journey......so roll down the window and enjoy the breeze.

Per dev tracker a development permit application has been filed for 2512-2526 Government Street in order to construct a new car dealership. Does anyone know which dealership is moving there …?

Could the Mercedes dealership next door be expanding?
