A Piece of Campbell River History Closes Its Doors

A piece of Campbell River history has closed its doors.  The Super Valu grocery store (see last building at end of row) was one of the first businesses to open in the Tyee Plaza in August of 1962, and served the community for 47 years, until the end of December 2009. Due to its seaside location, the store used to service boaters who were tied up at the Quadra ferry dock in the early years, and in later years supplied many of the logging camps.  A small business with a community focus, it offered years of friendly service and the convenience of shopping in the downtown core.  It is sure to be missed by many!
