Head down to Tsawwassen’s Beach Grove Cafe for a coffee and the recently-expanded, dazzlingly bright boutique.
The family-based business, which is run by Shawn Corke and her daughter Madison Stanyer, held their opening weekend July 17 and 18 and were visited by around 100 customers.
“It was wonderful. I’m pinching myself because you spend a year buying, crossing your fingers, holding your breath and hope that everyone loves it – it’s a leap of faith, it’s a gamble. And, it was very well-received. All my hard work paid off,” says Corke.
Corke was able to expand the Beach Grove Cafe following Sampsons Antique Co. relocating to Victoria, who were the previous tenants.
She describes the decision to use that space for her own business as “hard and fast.”
The front left side of the Beach Grove Cafe is the coffee shop, while the back and the right side make up the boutique full of clothes, accessories, home decorations, bath and body care items, candles and countless other goodies.
Corke extends her thank you to all her loyal customers who helped support her and her “one-stop shop” business throughout the pandemic.
The Beach Grove Cafe also offers online shopping, which you can do from www.the-beach-grove-cafe.myshopify.com/, and to stay up to date on deals and what they’re selling, check out their Instagram at @beachgrovecafe.
