Gastown Store Closure
As many of you know, a terrible fire destroyed the Gastown heritage building, the Winters Hotel, this past Monday. A number of businesses Gowon Cafe, Bruce Eyewear, Lemongrass, Roldorf & Co, Nika Custom Imports, Flying Pig, Australian Boot Company - located in this structure, have been permanently closed.
Due to the instability of what remains, we have been unable to access our spaces at all. These are trying and frightening times. Your compassion and patience are appreciated as we navigate this unfamiliar path of trauma, loss and destruction of our community inside the greater My Gastown community.
We fought hard to make our street beautiful, safe and welcoming. While we are all physically safe, we are not okay. The Gastown community has been incredibly supportive, as have our community of clients, suppliers and friends. We also regret the impact on our fellow businesses in the “collapse zone,” as they find creative ways to continue to do business. Thank you to the Vancouver Firefighters and the Vancouver police for their hard work.
One day at a time.
Bruised but not broken.
Our Main Street store remains fully operational and we very much hope to see you there!
With gratitude, Nada xo
