41st. & Dunbar)
Extended Hours and Marks & Spencers ... has arrived!!
The truck got here Thursday morning and we have been unpacking all day. Everything will be available when we open Friday morning.
M&S Update as of December 6th
According to information we have received from the trucking company, the truck has made it as far as Calgary. So long as the road is clear through the mountains we a reasonably confident that we should have the delivery in by Friday.
The shipment has been delayed by highway closures in Ontario. The latest we have heard is that the truck is now past Winnipeg and is headed for Calgary. After that it will be coming here and if all goes well there is a pretty good chance it will arrive on Friday. If it goes less well we should still have it by Monday but this is weather dependant and, even though it's lovely here in Vancouver, the rest of the country is having a proper winter. Check back here for further updates.
Marks & Spencer
I know many of you have been eagerly awaiting the Marks & Spencer Christmas cakes and puddings. We finally have word that they are in a truck on the last leg of their journey and if all goes well they will arrive some time on December 6th.
