The store is located in Steveston, a nostalgic refuge and historic fishing village in the southwest corner of Richmond, twenty minutes from the Vancouver airport, on the Gulf of Georgia. Take No.1 Road south of Steveston Highway, turn right at Chatham and then left on Second Avenue. We are halfway down the block on the right hand side.
