WORD ON THE STREET: Business moves on the West Shore

Christine Scott and Shelley Westwood have their eyes and ears on the street

Numerous new and exciting moves have been taking place recently on the business front around the West Shore.

Dale Collins and Prosperity Planning have moved into a beautiful new space at #122-2871 Jacklin Rd. close to Farley Martin Notaries, who are celebrating their first anniversary in the space a few doors down in unit 138.

Cory Kowalchuk has opened up Westshore Gold and Silver in Langford Centre, the same Goldstream Avenue plaza that hosts longtime area favourite Western Foods. A little further down the mall, Reloving Furniture has been opened by Kari Frazer, who demonstrates a passion for vintage furniture. Her shop offers consignments and sales of vintage pieces as well as classes in furniture remodeling. Across the street at 725 Goldstream Ave. is Avenue Boutique offering new clothes and accessories for women.

Dads Homemade Soups and Sangy’s has opened a second location for takeout only at 1096 Goldstream Ave. at Leigh Road. A little further down the street, Walker Power Equipment is under new ownership: Kevin Fitzpatrick specializes in small engine repair so drop by with your faulty lawn mower, trimmer, etc., and Kevin will be sure to help you out.

• At the corner at 145-2745 Veterans Memorial Pkwy., we welcome a brand new bridal boutique by the name of Tres Chic. Operator Joan Cabigas specializes in new dresses for brides and bridesmaids.

Drop by these new business and welcome them to our neighbourhood.
