Cardero Grocery, Vancouver, British Columbia 2016

The Cardero Grocery tucked away in Vancouver’s West End is another one of those old corner grocery stores that appears to exist in a time warp. Old painted lettering and old 7-Up logos on the facade. It seems to me the key to the longevity of these old stores is their proximity to a school. It’s not the local residents shopping that pays all the bills, it’s the children with their change buying candy and soft ¬†drinks. The Cardero Grocery is no different, located across the playground from Lord Roberts Elementary.
