Princess Auto Coming to Kamloops

Post by lrp374 »

I now have word from a reliable source that the Kamloops store will open in late February. I will post a date as soon as it is firm. Start planning your trip to Kamloops Almac!!

Hopefully we can have a large group show up for such an important event.

Sounds like an excuse for a road-trip to my childhood home!

UPDATE!!!
I lost my usually reliable "inside" source but the local paper interviewed PA and they plan to open Feb.15. He also said the Grand Opening would be about a week later. My guess would be Feb. 26 as I presume it would be on a Saturday.

I'll update after Jan. 25.

The "new" store is in about 1/3 the old Kmart in Valleyview if you remember where that is?

Has it been a Kmart all this time (the last 25 years)?

Kmart has likely been gone for 20 years. It was vacant for a while then the typical Call Center moved in for about 10 to 15 years. It was vacant for about a year and now Princess Auto!!
It will be nice having a Princess Auto that has a parking lot big enough for everyone that wants in the store. The Kelowna and Langley stores I typically have used have really dinky lots.
