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?
