IDA is on the move. Actually theyâ€™ve already relocated.
The independently owned and operated drug store, that was located on the corner of Fraser Highway and 206th Street for the last few years, has shifted a block north into what most recently was a produce store on 56th Avenue and 206th.
Now, in its former location, makeshift signs have already gone up indicating another large drug store â€“ Pharamasave â€“ is moving into the vacant space.
But indications are itâ€™s not a pharmacy, but rather a health care outlet going in there.
Unfortunately, that could still be bad or sad news for the little family-owned Valley Pharmacy around the corner on Douglas Crescent.
Eatery and pub opening
Speaking of the downtown, have you seen or heard the news of a restaurant and pub opening in Cascades Casino?
Match Eatery & Public House is currently under construction on the west side of the casino, next to the parkade. Itâ€™s set to open later this month â€“ no exact date has been set yet â€“ but thereâ€™s an invitation-only opening reception June 20, so expect to see the doors open to the public around that time.
â€¢ Stay tuned, I will bring you more soonâ€¦
Truckers steer group
Also on the business front, I wanted to commend a number of Langleyites for stepping up to help guide the B.C. Trucking Association.
The newest directors elected at the groupâ€™s annual general meeting in Kelowna on Saturday included Gerry Cullen of Western Star & Sterling Trucks, Ken Johnson of Ken Johnson Trucking (who takes over as second vice-chair), Murray Scadeng of Triton Transport, and Dan Watson of Canada Cartage.
This association represented more than 1,000 trucks and motor coach fleets moving produce and people around B.C.
