I would like to offer our congratulations to Shop Easy/Pepper’s on 50 years of excellent service to community.
More than 44 years ago, when my husband and I arrived in Victoria for our first visit, we were unaware of, and completely unprepared for, a strike of all of the chain-operated grocery stores in the city.
After a desperate day-long search for food and other necessities for our seven-month-old son, we spotted Shop Easy in Cadboro Bay. It was open.
We were two very relieved parents. And the staff treated us with such kindness.
We have never forgotten that day, or the kindness of the staff. And we have repeated our story many times since moving here ourselves.
