Arbutus has a number of new businesses that are worth a visit. Look around your own neighborhood. I don't agree that a Save-a-lot is the way to go with the departure of Super Fresh. I shop at Mars more frequently than any other grocery store, but I also travel to Columia to shop at Trader Joe's. I was hoping for a Trader Joe's in Arbutus or something similar. It would help to bring our surrounding neighbors into Arbutus. I feel we have lost a valuable opportunity.

Mentioning the words "teen center" today seems to be accepted as a negative....and that is unfortunate. Arbutus Teen Center was renowned in the 50s and 60s as THE PLACE TO BE ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. Rules were in place, everyone felt it was their social scene to protect and therefore rules were followed. Anyone stepping beyond the boundaries set was banned and that was a huge social no,no. It could work today with the right mind set and I think teens need that social seen, great music, place to talk, laugh, dance and enjoy among their peers. A whole lot better than walking the malls. Yike!! Does require some chaperoning.. but during the 50s, 60s teen center scene the chaperones were hardly noticed at all. Teens helped to make the rules and peer pressure controlled the scene nicely.

Sounds wonderful, Lorna! Do you know who sponsored the Teen Center? And was it only open on Friday & Saturday nights?

IF it takes a snow storm to get some people to spend $20 at the new Save-A-Lot, that's not a good 'forecast' for the economic success of the store. Now, if we lived in Alaska...?
