Fragrant bouquets of roasting chicken and charbroiled burger smells may soon be wafting through the air in Courtenay and many valley people, especially seniors and parents with small children are looking forward to the possibility of our very own Swiss Chalet and Harvey’s restaurants opening right here in the valley. Yes, yes, yes — the demand is definitely here and a general consensus shows that a lot of valley residents are keeping their fingers crossed that the possibility may soon become a reality. We have longed for a Swiss Chalet for a very long time now and one day soon may not have to drive all the way to Nanaimo to get our fill — and as for Harveys — yippee — haven’t had a great burger like theirs in a lot of years — yum!
A great gusty sigh and thank you from this older senior to the manager of Extra Foods in Comox. She read my letter requesting the return of a certain hygiene product that had disappeared from their shelves. She located the product, reordered it, phoned me and assured me it was back on the shelf and would continue to be there. It was. I am independent again and happy to shop as often as necessary at Extra Foods. The staff there are always friendly and so very helpful.
