Submitted What nominators are saying
103 days ago A must stop shop in Prince Rupert. What an amazing shop, one feels so welcomed when entering Edie's you are greeted no matter who is behind the till. I hear personal conversations all the time as the staff know their clients and care about them. Edie's offers a great selection of books, magazines, treats from the UK and ice cream and yoghurt. If you need a book and they don't have it, they will order it in for you. Love this business!
105 days ago Eddies News is a stop we make every saturday. The entire family and their employees are welcoming and make you feel like your business matters. Their selection of books and magazines are great and if there is anything that you can't find on the shelves they are more than willing to bring it in for you, often at a cheaper rate. The addition of the ice-cream bar is wonderful and the only thing that would make it better would be tables and chairs...but then I suppose no one would leave. All the staff there excel at what retail is all about...good value...good service....great people.

95 days ago We moved here four years ago and this single store has been the rock making the move positive for my kids. They continue to push the boundaries of creative in store activities all the time. Rob and the entire staff treat everyone like old friends at Good Times, it is a pretty amazing environment

» Mission Health & Wellness

Submitted What nominators are saying
96 days ago Mission has become a weekly staple for a lot of people in our community, whether it's for natural supplements, healthy organic sport nutrition and/or natural food alternatives. They have catered their product line to the needs of all her customers. I always see them at the different business events around town over the year like the Plaid Friday trade show, Pop up Prince Rupert and the Hecate trade show. They have sponsored teams in the Seafest hockey tournament 2 years in a row. In a time where local business owners are having a hard time fighting online shopping, I always find her products to be very competitive with online pricing. I also like buying all her locally sourced products like the North Pacific Kelp from Haida Gwaii and White Goat coffee from Terrace as well as organic produce bags from Harrow Community foods. Every time you ask for something that she doesn't have on shelf you never get "Sorry, I don't carry that" but rather "Let me source that out and I'll bring it in for you". Great service!
106 days ago Great service and product selection. Could also be rookie business too!

102 days ago I don't know how they can keep track of all their inventory, they seem to have everything under the sun - weed whackers and generators to socks and sandals. And consistently reliable customer service too.
106 days ago Fantastic selection, great service, top name merchandise, good value, the store has everything.
