Having been in this town for many years, I’ve watched this mall swallow up the space Wal-Mart Left, putting in a food court, and later a Sport Chek, Timmies, EB Games & Best Buy, and now expanding once again. They really concern themselves with making it into a hub for people to chill, relax, and do some therapy shopping!! There are also seasonal shops which pop up in the middle of the other shops, check them out during the holidays for favorites such as the Log Barn!
It’s always fairly clean for the amount of traffic that goes through. This location also makes an excellent place to have a wind friendly walk in the early hours, (as later hours do get crowded) for those who don’t wish to be stuck to a treadmill.
HI I’m Raven, I just got back from Random Acts of Costuming, where we cheered up some kids and some people, I put on my best smile, and now without any further ado, here is SarahTonin’s Exploration Update for the Month of September. Teen Titans GO!
Didn’t go many places, but we did make some delicious shish
kabobs and had a corn feast, which if you see there, I’ve taken two slices of tomato
and slathered them on the corn. (This to be done after normal condiments
applied, butter, salt and pepper) That’s how you do it RIGHT!
Saw this spectacular sunrise, peeking out from behind a fire
Snapped a few shots of this excellent sunset on the way back
Went camping, made some camp food! Yes, Omelets ARE camp
And I thought I’d end it on a funny note. Why can’t you
Trust an Artist? Because….They’re Shady! They’re Sketchy! AND they might try
to Frame you! Have a great week guys and hopefully I’ll explore way more things this month however as
the winter months set in, I tend to bunker down and hibernate…and wait for
the cold to go away! So you may see me venture out, once in a while, but expect
to see more updates in regards to Tutorials, and other such likes! Stay Tuned!
Friendly homey atmosphere that makes you want to relax and unwind. Have a tea, coffee, or pastry and let a charming barista take your order, then make it for you while you watch! It makes an excellent end of day location, as it’s store front faces towards the sunset, allowing you to bask in it’s glow.
Just when I thought humans had started figuring it out, we’ve got sneaky buggers trying to re-instate chemical usage that will finish killing off our already endangered bees! As a gardener, I’m aware it may be “easier” to grow plants when you don’t have to worry about bugs, but when you don’t have the pollen carrier, the plants will just DIE, and so ends green things being able to live on this earth, at least in our current natural cycle.
‘Sum of Us’ activists have put forward a campaign to save these poor bees, let’s do our part in ensuring our future!
Dozens of bee species are now extinct or on the verge of disappearing. But Bayer and its cronies are twisting the EU’s arm into ignoring bee-saving rules against harmful pesticides — the same rules that got toxic neonicotinoids banned last year.
We all rely on bees to pollinate fruit, vegetables and crops. But around the world bees are in decline, putting the future health of our planet at risk — and unless the EU takes concrete steps to save the bees, this trend shows no sign of reversing.
MEPs urgently need to challenge the bureaucrats that buckled to Bayer’s lobbyists. MEPs could force a U-turn, and revive plans to crack down on all bee-harming pesticides.
It’s the EU’s job to force corporations like Bayer to take bee health seriously — and prevent deadly, bee-killing chemicals from flooding our fields. Bayer shouldn’t be telling the EU what to do. Across Europe, MEPs plastered their election campaigns with pledges to save the bees. Will you sign the petition now to tell MEPs to live up to their promises?
Sign the petition to demand that MEPs fix this mess urgently and protect bees from deadly pesticides.

This used to be the place to go, however large crowds make the end of the day a nightmare, and prices going up for both the ticket and the ride passes make this location just another money grab. Sad to see this event go the way of so many others. May as well save your money and enjoy yourself at the Salmon Arm Fair.

Regardless of the rude comments of homeless people hanging out in here (Apparently most of these people are kinder then you!) this location is clean, yet somehow they cannot get orders right. My colleagues and I will be removing our business, and will be warning others if this doesn’t improve, as charging people for items they didn’t order, or not giving them something as simple as a bun in their chili means attention to detail is lacking, and makes other areas such as health and safety come into question.
*Update September 19th 2019*
My colleagues decided to give you a few more shots, however the first time you took over 30 minutes to heat up chili, and the second time you told them to take it and warm it up in the microwave. This location is a JOKE.
Just spent 5 minutes on hold, pressed 1 to speak to a print associate, only to have them return me to the main menu. I tried again, this time dialing 2, and an associate picked it up, put it on the desk, I tried calling out to the employee for a good 2 minutes before hanging up and trying again. I eventually hung-up, called back, only to have the phone picked up and hung up. I have tried 5 times since this, however, every-time the hold time is up, it returns me to the main menu. Menu option 1 still has a dial tone, meaning option 2’s phone is still sitting on the desk. This is terrible customer service, coupled with a horrible phone system.
After being unable to get through after 20 minutes, I phoned head office, as I see this is a pattern and is completely unacceptable.
Head office not only listened, told me how they are going to follow back up with an action plan, but also offered me a coupon in regards to the item I’d been trying to call them about to ask. Head office gets 5 stars, this location still gets 1.
We’ll have to come back to/ callback this location in a few months and see if promised improvements are made!)
This place is incredible! Once a month, they hold a pizza draw online, and when you win, you get LOADED with pizza!!! Our office of 20 was easily fed by the amount, their pizza was delectable and their wings not soggy! I feel this place makes their product for the right reasons, and I hope their quality and care will continue!
