AK Green Initiatives, my long time garbage bag supplier, had hit the pause button due to covid and their ability to source materials, but they are back at it again! Got a fresh delivery this week. Woo!

Moores:

 

 

Lawrence Larsen, manager of the Uptown store, said the three Island locations will continue to operate.

 

At least two stores — both in Surrey — have not reopened.

 

Larsen said the Uptown location is operating without 40 per cent of its usual staff.

 

He said sales since reopening have been “consistent, but overall the business is really down” from previous years.

Who would be buying suits right now? I literally wore sweatpants for three months & hardly brushed my hair. I feel badly for their employees- hopefully they’ll make it through

You just know times are tough when garbage bags bring excitement! :-)

Hey, what can I say, we use 9 or 10 every day, and getting best quality and service for lowest price from a local supplier is the holy grail!

I basically manage inventory for a living. :)

Potato management was a big deal in late June and early July!
