Impulse Foods, Saanich BC 2015

This family corner grocery store closed right at the end of December 2014.  It sits across from a small garage and hair stylist, a small pocket of neighbourhood commercial enterprises. When this photo was taken there was someone inside the premises cleaning and packing up.

The details in the window already attest to a time in history  especially the sign referring to the DVD sale as the store rented videos and we all know that is a business that still barely exists at this time.

Last week the Calgary Herald ran an article and photographs on the last occupied house in downtown Calgary being demolished. A nice look at changing demographics, times and urban life. It also shows the value of documenting existing landscapes and lifestyles while they exist.
