Experience IT Review – Granville Island

Yesterday the INTERNeX family went to Granville Island. Thank you for coming!

Granville Island is a small island next to downtown Vancouver. You can go there by aquataxi or by bus. The main attraction on Granville Island is the public market where you can get delicious food and fresh groceries. Once there you can also choose to go to the Granville Island Brewery, one of the first breweries in Vancouver. There you can get good tasters.

A lot of the outside terraces were open, which made it much more lively on the streets of Granville Island. We first went to the public market, where we did a quick round. It took a long time before we found the best deal, as there are a lot of stands where they sell veggies and fruits. After we checked out several stands, I decided to be a bit more healthy and bought some nice and big strawberries. Then we checked out all the food stands of Granville Island. I keep getting amazed by their big variety and it therefore took a while before I got my bratwurst. When we filled our stomaches, we decided to go to downtown to do some shopping for the summer.

I hope you all had a great weekend and see you at PuB NiGHT!

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!

This time we have a super cheap grocery smart saver in China town for you guys.

If you want to buy watermelons for $1 or three cucumbers for $1 or maybe you are more fan of strawberries for a $1, than you should go and visit the Sunrise Market in Chinatown. The Sunrise market is located on 300 Powell street, just of Main street. They do not only sell cheap vegetables and fruits, but also basic groceries. The market is open everyday from 8am to 6pm.

Sunrise market is a asian run grocery shop, which you will notice as soon as you see the store. Asian people running around talking to each other and than there is you, standing in the middle of all of it buying your cheap grocery, couldn’t get any better.

If you go, do not let the look of the store scare you away, it is not a no frills, nesters or any of the other supermarket.

See you there

INTERNeX Canada: Smart Saver Vancouver

During one of our lunch breaks, the PR team went down to check out Sunrise Market, which is two blocks down from the INTERNeX office. Tim had recommended this particular grocer because of the cheap prices it offers and raved about it so greatly that we had to go see what the fuzz was about!

Upon arrival, we were confronted with a very crowded store front full of fruits and vegetables. All I could hear from the other girls were how cheap everything was! Here are some examples: 2 large bags of garlic for $1.00, asparagus for $1.49, cherries, cucumbers and a large bag of peppers for $1.00…. Yes, the list goes on.

The only downside is that you have to dig through a little bit because the vegetable produce wasn’t the freshest available, though Tim did warn us beforehand. Who cares when you are getting a bargain?

Address:

Sunrise Market
300 Powell St
Vancouver, BC

(604) 685-8019

Hours: Mon-Sun 7:30 am – 6 pm

You should also check out the rest of the store inside, it may look quite small but there is meat, snacks and other typical food that you may need.

Needless to say, we all went back to the office happy, each with a bag of food in our hands.

Cheers,

Queenie

INTERNeX Canada – Smart Saver Vancouver

 

It was definitely a huge shock when I got to Vancouver and realized how much more expensive everything is. The other INTERNeX staff gets to hear me complain about this every time I go to buy something. I’m sure it’s their favorite part of the day! 😉

 

I obviously would love to find the cheapest place to shop because of this. I know that most of you have heard of No Frills because it seems to be the cheapest grocery store in Vancouver. They have an awesome selection of great products and it’s pretty unlikely that you will find prices like theirs anywhere else!

Would you like to know what the best part is? This week is their $1 sale! Everything from V8 juice to applesauce is on sale! I would highly recommend going and checking out these awesome deals.

Here’s a link to the website: No Frills

 

Cheers,
