March Community Newsletter

MARCH 2017

Hello March. We’ve been eagerly awaiting Spring’s arrival. River District Vancouver would like to welcome Everything Wine to the neighbourhood. We’re also seeking your feedback on what type of retailers you’d like to join our thriving community. To celebrate this month, we’re hosting a fun-filled Hello Spring kids craft session and for Ladies Night, say hello to Beautycounter, a safer and effective skin care line for families. With Spring around the corner, the River District Farmers Market can’t be too far behind and we’re calling for vendors to join us for our fifth season #downbytheriver.

 

River District Vancouver is thrilled to announce our newest retail neighbour, Everything Wine, to Town Centre. We can’t wait for them to join us. www.everythingwine.ca
