McBride, BC is a small village without even a traffic light. As you might expect, there aren’t a lot of stores to shop in, so it is big news when new shopping opportunities arise. Last week we were surprised when we learned that Home Hardware had converted some upstairs apartments into more retail space. I had never even noticed the staircase that led upstairs, but armed with the knowledge of the store expansion, I eagerly sought out the stairs, and climbed them to see what new items were offered.
While still a work in progress, the upstairs offers socks, boots, jackets, and workwear, all things that we need in our rural community, that were no longer available in local stores. I thank Home Hardware for increasing the choices to the Robson Valley residents.
