“I like to have a lot of options to buy what I need,” said Edmonds resident Teri K. “We have some great small specialty shops in Edmonds that I get things at, but we needed more options in our neighbourhood. Now we have that.”

Shoppers were greeted by staff wearing masks and squirting dollops of hand sanitizer on their outstretched palms.

 “As a proud part of your community, we are committed to providing you the very best shopping experience, right in your neighbourhood,” said store manager Mike Pare.
