After a wonderful 10 years at the CNIB in Vancouver, its time to go! CNIB sold the building to the YMCA last year and the Y is desirous of our space, so off we go to Burnaby : 107 – 3823 Henning Drive to be precise.
Our new location is not far from here, located just southeast of Boundary Road and Lougheed Hwy, behind the Accent Inn on Henning. The Gilmour Skytrain station is nearby. Our phone and fax numbers remain, as does our email. Our new postal code is V5C 6P3.
Moves are a wonderful time to purge and ours is no exception. We have managed to hoard more inventory than we should have. Rather than pay the movers, we are passing along some significant savings to you, our valued customers. Please click on the following link to see the fabulous deals !
Moves are also a wonderful excuse to have a party. Please watch our website for our Open House announcement coming in the Spring!
In the meantime, please feel free to drop in anytime!
Our move date is February 25, 2013. Until then, we are still at our location in the CNIB Building, 105-5055 Joyce Street, Vancouver.
