Smart Saver Vancouver

This week we want to give you a practical Smart Saver about where the best places are to buy your groceries.

Let’s start off with No Frills. No Frills is one of the cheapest grocery stores around here. It’s a good place to go for all your basic items like canned tomatoes, pasta, spices, cheese and much more. When you’re there it is a good idea to look at their own brand “No Name” since these are the cheapest products they sell. They have locations in downtown, 4th avenue, Broadway and Fraser.

A good place to go for all your veggies and fruits are the little markets that you can find on almost every corner. Their vegetables and fruits are just as good as they are at the bigger supermarkets, but just way cheaper. A few examples are the Sunrise Market on Powell St and the Apple Farm Market on 4th Avenue and Broadway. But of course you can just go to every market that is close to you, since you can’t really go wrong with fruits and veggies.

Another good place to go for veggies and fruits is T&T supermarket. There are several located throughout Vancouver. They also have a lot of fresh seafood and pre-cooked dinners. If you go there at the end of the day you can even get a discount on the lunch and dinner dishes like sushi.IMG_1533

Then there is Walmart and the Real Canadian Superstore. Both of them offer most food cheaper than any other supermarket does, but especially items like granola bars, cereal, yogurt and bread. Unfortunately none of these stores are close to downtown, but it might be a good idea to go there every now and then to buy in bulks.

The last one is Costco. Unfortunately you can’t get in unless you have a membership, so most of you probably won’t be able to go there. However, if you are looking for a cheap lunch, outside at the food court you can get a hotdog and large soda for only $ 1.50. We are huge fans of those in the office.

I hope to see all of you at The Pint for PuB NiGHT!

INTERNeX Canada: Smart Saver Vancouver

Vancouver sometimes can be really expensive, and therefore we stop attending places that we used to go when we were at home because they were way cheaper.

Finding a cheap place for both men and women to get your hair cut here can be quite difficult and it’s  way too expensive.

This week, I would like  to show you an interesting , nice and cheap option for those who can’t afford expending lots of money for taking care of their hairs.

There is a hair training centre in West Broadway at Cambie, where you can get a very good price for their services.

For example, for both men and women, Shampoo, Cut and Blow Dry  is $9 dollars for short hair and $10 dollars for long hair. 

Additionally, If you want to request flat iron you’ll pay $15 dollars, instead of $10.

Hair Up and Evening Styling starting from $35.

Conditioning treatments available from $10 ( conditioning or clarifying treatment) to $25 (clear gloss treatment).

Perms and colors are available from $25 and up and hi-lights are also really cheap, starting from $45.

  • The best: It’s very cheap if you compare it with another hair dressers.
  • The worst: all the services are performed by students, but they are always supervised by professionals.

Check here all the services if you are interested.

Name: Future Hair Training Centre

Address : 512 W Broadway, Vancouver, BC V5Z 1E9

Telephone: (604) 709-6055

Hope it helped guys.

Best,

Mercedes

INTERNeX Canada: PuB NiGHT @ The Cactus Club Café Review

We spent yesterday’s PuB NiGHT at the The Cactus Club Café on Broadway and Granville. In this fancy place we had a big table in the back room with fireplaces, huge windows and glass roof. We enjoyed very tasty cocktails and delicious desserts, how does this sound: White chocolate cheesecake, chocolate peanut butter crunch bar or chocolate lava cake! This was also a birthday cake for Yvette who celebrated her birthday! It was so much fun to have such a special occasion this evening and we dedicated our drinks to the birthday girl!

Thank you everyone for coming and keep an eye out on our Facebook page and blog for next week’s pub night announcement.

The Vancouver Staffhouse

We have a very nice staff house in Vancouver. The house is full right now but please contact mayuko@internexcanada.com if you are interested to move in later on. There are around 11 people living in the house from all over the world. There is always something fun going on but the house is big enough if you want to have some time to relax on your own.

Everyone helps out with the cleaning and you buy your own food.

It’s a good location. Just a few minutes on the bus away from busy Broadway with shops and coffee places.
