Something is brewing in Vancouver

Something is brewing in Vancouver. More info to follow I have a question for my reefer peeps. If all things are equal and prices and selection are great would you care if shop was in a light industrial warehouse (like the old OIAB)

Those are some very interesting points.  One thing that might be cool to have for beginners is to advertise an "intro to reef tanks" class or seminar.  Just some 2 hour class to talk about what it takes, what all the equipment is, maintenance requirements.  

A reef tank is daunting... its even daunting at times to people with lots of knowledge.  One only needs to look at the success of the 52-weeks or reefing series to know that there is an untapped market of people that are interested but have no idea where to begin. 

I mean.. if some newb heard me talking in a store he would hear something like "yeah, my millipora isn't doing so well, so I moved my maxspect 250 lower and programmed a new anti synced flow regime, I will probably just frag it to see if the RTN stops, at least until my GFO catches up with my phosphates" 

And then they would say "this is not for me" 

On the list!!

Looks like a pretty decent store front.  Where is this located in Vancouver?  That sliding garage style door would make a lot

of things easier to take care of and in the summer months would make it a lot more comfortable I would think.  Lots good to me!

I hope it works out for you.  I would love to see it once it is open.  I am in the Hazeldell area of Vancouver.

Looks like a good sized space with a nice front and practical (garage door) access.  Nice score Brian!  Looking forward to seeing this set up.

Hey Brian - when you are ready shoot me a business name and address and I can add you to the LFS map that just went live.
