Signs of spring are everywhere in Cadboro Bay Village! Cherry and crabapple blossoms, daffodils, camellias, and rhododendrons are cheerfully showing off their beauty throughout the neighbourhood. Shops are getting new products in, the cafes and restaurants are updating their seasonal menus. What a perfect time to visit and see what is in store for you in Cadboro Bay Village!
What a better way to celebrate the season than with an Easter Egg Hunt! But this isn’t your usual egg hunt, this is a virtual egg hunt! Hidden in select shop windows throughout Cadboro Bay Village are five posters with pictures of decorated Easter Eggs on them. Snap a selfie or a pic of your friends, standing in front of the hidden Easter Egg poster and post it on our Facebook Page with the hash tag #CBVEggHunt and you’ll be entered to win an Easter Basket full of merchandise and coupons from the shops in Cadboro Bay Village. Find all five posters and be entered in the draw five times!
The newest shop in Cadboro Bay Village, Paw Space opened their doors on March 1st, taking over the space that used to be Miss Daisy’s Pet Supply, and have made noticeable improvements to the space.
Here’s what the new owner, Erin, has to say about their store:
We are a pet supply store with everything from dog and cat food to some fish and small animal supplies. We are definitely focusing on Canadian-made, holistic products and we will have a grooming service hopefully by April 1st or so. We are carrying the top healthy, grain free brands of dog and cat food. We will have frozen, raw food and something that’s becoming very popular which is freeze dried food. Some of the toys and cat litter boxes and dishes are made from recycle materials. We are carrying supplements for cats and dogs to help with joint repair, skin and coat repair and Biofats and vitamins. Bulk and packaged cookies, treats, etc.
We had a wonderful Valentine’s Day Social and Sunglass Draw at Amanda Weinerman Optometry on February 13th. Thank you to everyone who participated and congratulations to our many prize winners.
