Yesterday, as I drove along Richmond Road (I know, it’s shocking because I’m usually on my bike or walking), I thought I would look sadly at the “Closed” sign where Expedition Shoppe used to be, across from Mountain Equipment Coop.

I was shocked to see a new store in its location. On my drive out to pick up my niece, I only noticed it had already been leased. And on the way back, I looked again, only to discover it was another outdoorsy store. I tried to remember the name, but what with driving and catching up with my niece, it was gone.

So, today I cycled a bit of a detour to get groceries and got this photo:

Great Escape Outfitters

Great Escape Outfitters

And they just opened today! Can’t get any fresher than that!
