Hearing that a business you love is opening in your city

I thought I would continue with last week’s theme of what I find awesome about Lethbridge.

I am a huge fan of products from Bath & Body Works. Every time I’m in Calgary, I have to stop by their location in Chinook Centre (followed by a quick browse through the Lego store next door). So you can imagine the immense joy I experienced when I saw the following Facebook post by Bath & Body Works Canada:

Now, don’t get me wrong. I enjoy road trips no matter where I go, but soon I won’t have to drive white-knucked in Calgary traffic (eep!) or pay shipping to order their products online. I’ve even wrestled with the idea of applying to work there part-time when they open just for the discounts, but I’m not sure I want to sacrifice myself to the world of customer service again.

Anyway, YIPPEE! I now understand how others felt when businesses like DavidsTea and Cora opened in Lethbridge. Sometimes, even the rumours and speculation of what could be opening a location in the city is enough to get people excited. I’ve heard that a Harvey’s will be going into the new building in College Centre, and that The Gap might be coming back (but as a stand-alone store).

It’s nice to see that our city is starting to be seen as a viable place for these businesses to open shop.

Though I have a sneaking suspicion that Lethbridgians won’t be completely satisfied until a Red Lobster is finally announced.

What businesses would you like to see come to Lethbridge?

  1. Can you tell me what is planned to go into the place where Zellers and the Cheesecake Cafe use to be? I am dependent on the buses and haven’t been that way in a while, so I don’t have a clue as to what is being done in either location.

    • I know that before Zellers closed there were rumours that Target would move in, but it doesn’t sound like that is going to happen now. Someone told me that there is still a “For Lease” sign in front of the building, but nothing is going in there that I know of as of yet. Hudsons Tap House will be going into the old Cheesecake Cafe, which is kind of sad because I was hoping the Cheesecake Cafe would reopen.
