In September 2013, Burnaby City Council approved the redevelopment of the Brentwood Mall area. With the addition of 10 towers, this location will be transformed into a new urban hub, including up to 350 shops and restaurants, a 50,000 square foot grocery store and up to 4,200 residential units. The Brentwood Project will be built in several phases over the next 20 years
On paper it sounds amazing, but looking at the pictures it is apparent that the project is a nightmare for Brentwood Mall. With the lower parking lot being dug up, many businesses have closed including, BC Liquor Store, McDonalds and Starbucks. Pedestrians arriving by Skytrain now have to trek all the way to the entrance located near the old Zellers location. When I was at the mall, many businesses had Sale signs posted and there were few shoppers to be seen.

Vancouver Public Library: Friends Of The Library http://www.friendsofthevpl.ca/fall-used-book-sale/
is having another great book sale. With prices starting at just 50 cents and most books priced lower than $4.00 it's a great price to pick up some super deals and stock up on books for the winter. The sale runs from Sept 18th to 20th and is at the library's central branch.
Check out the FOL website: http://www.friendsofthevpl.ca/
to see how the money raised is spent.
Hours after Apple's early opening for the new release of the
iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus, over a hundred people are still in line outside the Pacific Centre Mall on Granville Street. The rain does not seem to have deterred people. Many started lining up a day earlier in the hopes of being able to purchase one of the new phones with prices starting at $749 for the iPhone 6 and $859 for the iPhone 6 Plus.
