Orchard Plaza Shopping Centre

1980 Cooper Rd #201, Kelowna, BC V1Y 8K5

★★★★★ 

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.

Excited to see what you guys have in store!

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.

Customer service is excellent, people care.

Tim Hortons

261 Bernard Ave, Kelowna, BC V1Y 6N2

*April 19th 2019*
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.

Blenz Coffee

104-460 Doyle Ave, Kelowna, BC V1Y 2A2

September 2019- Still clean, however their space is harder to maneuver in and the lineup is not clearly marked so you could be standing in line on the wrong side of the counter and have someone budge you. Staff are still smiling and friendly, however, their inability to put cream cheese on a bagel that costs me twice as much as Timmies and tastes like cardboard, has warped my view of this location. Stars have been set at 2 from 5.

Original Post:

September 2018- Clean, spacious, open feel. Fast and friendly and smiling staff, coffee prices close to Tim’s.

Dollarama

171 Hollywood Rd S, Kelowna, BC V1X 3S8

Growing up in Rutland, the most exciting thing around was Value Village and the few pretend dollar stores that popped up and went out of business in the IGA strip mall. (You know the ones, most items range from 5-20 dollars, rarely having any items lower then a Toonie) This location will see lots of business as the location is one of the most spacious in Kelowna, and while it appears they are still working on getting the perfect team together, it was organized & clean.

My vehicle went in for a tire change, and came out with a scrape. I felt bad bringing it up, they’ve always been so good to me. They booked me in after verifying they made the damage. I then managed to miss the first appointment, a scheduling error on my part, however, they re-booked me in! As I dropped it off, I again stressed which scratch was theirs and which was mine. Picking it up today, they not ONLY fixed their scrape, they fixed the other two scratches which had been made earlier in the year. I’m overwhelmed with gratitude, and can’t begin to express how kind and caring they are. Thank you for the customer service and care you provide, please keep up the good work!

Friendly staff who take the time to learn about you and remember you as you walk through the door. Prompt driver services if you have to leave your vehicle for any lengthy or short repairs.

Cactus Club Cafe

1575 Banks Rd, Kelowna, BC V1X 7Y1

Expect insane prices and small portions as this place is all about providing you a ritzy atmosphere with girls in tight skirts and good looking guys in ties as you gaze out onto the expensive yachts – it is a Yacht Club after all. Service is excellent, however, 13 dollars for a glass of wine makes the whole meal taste sour.

McDonald’s

2120 Harvey Ave, Kelowna, BC V1Y 6G8

The last time I was at this location the fries were greasy and saltless, but I gave it another chance as this location had always been good, even at 2 in the morning! Ordered a large fries and three cheeseburgers, fries came out hot and perfectly salted, cheeseburgers were warm and sauce was evenly spread. However, if you’re gonna have an ‘Any Lane Anytime’ sign, and you’re gonna crate off one lane, maybe turn it off?
