‘”There’s a real history and a real connection to the community. Even people as they’re moving out, they’re coming from Prince George, from Victoria, from wherever, they have to stop in at the Chocolate Bear. One lady, she came from North Van. She brought her kids in she just started crying. It’s the place where Grandma used to take her, so lots of memories.” – Maria DeVries, owner of the Chocolate Bear Shoppe.
