  1. Cioffi’s Meat Market and Deli is a foodie’s paradise. Stepping into this shop is like being transported into an adult Disneyland made of gastronomic wonders. It is just one of many reasons why The Heights is such a special place!

    To all the people who work in Cioffi’s and make it so inviting, I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

    Best,

  3. Chez Christophe,
    Thank you again for joining our neighbourhood, and contributing to Westridge school, and offering the best chocolate croissants that I have tasted in my whole life. I am almost thankful that I don’t live very close to you, as I would be about twelve pounds heavier already.
    You’re helping to make Hastings classy!

  5. The service at Valley Bakery is always exceptional! I placed a special order earlier this year, and staff and management were happy to accommodate. I provided the recipe and they made fantastic King Cakes for Mardi Gras. Thank you for going out of your way to make my party successful!

  8. […] you shop. It’s also Buy Local Week, which means you can win a $2,000 shopping spree from Heights merchants! When you’re shopped out, gather at the Fire Hall (Hastings & Carleton) for a magical […]

  9. Merry Christmas to all the girls at Making Memories with Scrapbooking. The staff are so friendly and helpful that it makes spending my money locally a pleasure!

  10. My favorite shopping spot on the Heights is Making Memories with Scrapbooking. The ladies working in this lovely shop have always been so friendly and kind to me. Helping out with ideas and their Friday Make and Takes are excellant ways to get me to shop in their store!

    I have to say that Anita’s Pharmacy was a very nice spot to place my order for perscriptions. The offer to have them delivered was really appreciated, even though I did not want to trouble them, I picked up my perscriptions at the pharmacy. Speaking and listening to Anita made me feel very good!

    Another Heights stop for me is the former North Shore Credit Union now called Blue Shore. Still having to get used to the NEW name but the faces are very familiar. I started off with the North Shore Credit Union when it was run out of the basement of a home up on Barnet when I was 11 years old, followed them to Hastings & Sperling, then into the Kensington Mall and now on Hastings St – really convenient for me to go their and then down a few steps to Making Memories!

    Wishing all the shops in the Heights a Very Merry Christmas and Keep up the good work in 2014!

  18. Thank you Making Memories for being my favourite Burnaby Heights business! I can see and feel your passion in your work each time I come in for a card making class or when I need scrapbooking supplies. Although you ladies, Diana, Amari, Debbie, all own the store, you treat all your customers with patience, care and love. Even though I purchased a card making class voucher from Groupon, you all greet me by name, and you all personally take the time to get to know me even. Thank you for making great memories with me and my friends and family.

    I wish you and your families the very best holiday!
