North Shore’s Favourites

| Readers Choice 2019

The People Have Spoken! In this, our 23rd year hosting the Readers Choice Awards for the North Shore, we are delighted with the level of participation. With more than 4,200 ballots cast, we feel this is truly a representation of the North Shore’s favourites! Here on this side of the Lions Gate Bridge, we are blessed with some amazing natural beauty as well as many top-notch dining, shopping and service options. Many of the merchants here offer exceptional customer service with products and services to match. In our busy world, North Shore residents appreciate the extra attention to detail as we go about our days, whether we are picking up our dry cleaning, getting our hair done, or heading out to celebrate a birthday at our family’s favourite ethnic restaurant. As such, we’ve designed Readers Choice to encompass 133 categories, including your favourite restaurants, favourite auto service centre, favourite furniture store, favourite dance studio and more. Simply put, today we celebrate the businesses that stand out from the rest. In the pages that follow we are delighted to feature your choices for 2019. Be sure to read the results to discover which businesses have received the most votes and maybe even earned Platinum status – which is winning five years consecutively. While reviewing, take notice of the ads from businesses who have graciously thanked readers for their votes. Now that is class! Then get out there and sample the goods and the services of these businesses. They are local and rely on your patronage so they can in turn support our community. Congratulations to all the businesses that have been chosen as being the favourites in this great community of ours. You are truly what make the North Shore special.

Favourite Retirement Residence CEDAR SPRINGS PARC

The Team at Cedar Springs PARC

CEDAR SPRINGS PARC CARES ABOUT COMMUNITY <HB>#H&?B 4&# B?4! 4? Seymour’s Cedar Springs PARC are passionate about their community. “We really care about this neighbourhood and it’s so special to be part of the community and to give back,” explains Earl Bergen, who has been the general manager at Cedar Springs since it opened in 2012. Today, Cedar Springs has approximately 160 independent senior residents who are active inside the close-knit retirement community and the surrounding neighbourhood. “Our company philosophy is we don’t just build these retirement communities and then have these islands in the middle of a neighbourhood. We are part of the neighbourhood we are in and certainly Cedar Springs has become a part of the Seymour community.” Since opening seven years ago, Cedar Springs has been an annual sponsor of the Parkgate Community Services Society programs for seniors and more recently the Mount Seymour United Church’s volunteer-run Thrift Shop. “They really are the second community centre in Seymour. The church’s Thursday sale day is absolutely packed with the entire neighbourhood; they do

such great things locally and internationally,” he explains. /F?HE 4 64ECH GEH 4? 0>$&B .4&$E in Deep Cove displaced 6o-plus residents in the summer of 2018, the seniors at Cedar Springs sprang to action and began making personal donations, raising more than $5,000 to help ?@H GEH :>%?>)B* 1@H& <4>&HE .266HE, F$=&#HE and chairman of PARC <H?>EH)H&? 0>:>&C, @H4E# 43$=? the fundraising residents, he matched the donation and then rounded it up to $12,960. (?+B &$? ?@H GEB? ?>)H .266HE @4B got out his chequebook to help a community cause. When the Deep Cove Heritage Society was preparing to publish the wonderful book Echoes Across Seymour: A History of North Vancouver’s Eastern Communities Including Dollarton and Deep Cove in black and white, he made a donation so the book could be published in colour. “We also advertise in the Deep Cove Seniors program,” said Bergen.

SUCCESS DOG GROOMING HAS THE SECRET TO SUCCESS When Rob and Richelle Goodall started their dog grooming business as a husband and wife team working side-by-side, one customer gave them six months together - tops. That was 23 years ago. Today, the Goodalls are still happily married and one of the most popular dog grooming shops on the North Shore. In fact, they have so many Readers Choice Awards they are running out of wall space!

“We listen to our customers and always try to do what they ask,” says Rob about their longstanding success. The best part about the business? “Everyone loves the dogs. It’s the most rewarding part.” That’s why the Goodalls are so excited to be moving the grooming business into A Spot for Spot, a dog daycare they purchased in 2014. “It just makes sense for us to have businesses together!” Rob says of their move, which is planned for Spring 2019. !

YAAS GRILL HOUSE’S DELICIOUS DISHES EARN PLATINUM AWARD If you’ve ever had a meal at Yaas Grill House, you’ll understand why the popular Persian restaurant is a North Vancouver dining institution and Readers Choice Platinum Award winner. “The key to our success is simple: providing quality consistent food that tastes great every single time,” says Mirna. “It means a lot (to win Platinum). We are so proud.”

2014-2018

Yaas has been serving delicious Persian cuisine on the North Shore for over two decades. Step inside and you will see diners of all cultural backgrounds enjoying tasty meals. “I really enjoy seeing that; we’ve introduced Persian food to so many other cultures,” said Mirna. X' !:.< SA8> 2><: :!C) F: LFF<I N!>BF recommends trying the hot bread and kabob, one of the most popular menu items. !
