I like this development especially the fact residential is being incorporated into it. And I especially like the fact Quality Foods is the anchor. We hit their Parksville store any time we're in the area and need groceries. Hopefully the finished development looks as good as the rendering.
We have frequented their Parksville store as well and enjoy their Chinese food. Fresh. Tasty. Better than many Chinese take out places, and at reasonable prices. The food is cooked in-house. The Langford store will open first in May 2014 I believe, in the old Ashley Furniture location.
The location is great for hospital workers and others in the neighbourhood. I do feel sorry for Helmcken Market. It will be a tough battle for them. I do miss seeing the cows grazing though.
