Ah. Yes, I have heard about that. Apparently one of the farms close to town spread a whole batch of rotten compost on their fields. It is pretty bad.

Enderby. There was ad eparment stroe, maybe Woolworths? at the end of Cliff Ave, right by the bridge. I think it is a Bargain Shop now? In the summer the front window would be full of beach toys, air mattress, beach balls etc.
Funny, that is what I remember?
Burger Baron on the corner of Cliff and Hyw 97. This was circa 1989.
I always liked going to Enderby. Far enough from home yet close enough to not be far from home. I grew up in Vernon.

What I remember this store was Reimer Department Store

When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you. Do what makes you happy, and do it a little better every day… and don’t forget to breath!

Yes that is the one.
I assumed it was Woolworths but I figured I was 100% wrong.
I just remember seeing the front window full of summer beach toys when I was little.
And you know what? I am almost 40 and I still have never set foot in that place!
