Shop Local, Shop Downtown: ...comforts the sole
Wednesday, January 26th 2011
When Lorna Watkinson-Zimmer decided to open …comforts the sole, just after Easter of 1993, it was just as much necessity as desire. Lorna had been selling her Birkenstock shoes through a home based business, selling to friends and at the Red Deer Market. Soon, Lorna found that she was simply too busy and did not have the space in her home to continue selling, so she decided to leave her teaching position, and open one of Red Deer’s most pleasant shops.
Business Profile: Vietnamese Subs and Rolls
Thursday, January 13th 2011
Tony Pham, owner of Vietnamese Subs and Rolls, opened the doors of his business in July of 2009 with a simple goal of creating a unique lunch option for downtown workers. It was an interesting choice for Tony, who recognized the calculated risk he was taking by operating an establishment with a somewhat unknown specialty, Vietnamese Subs. The risk has paid off for Tony so far, as he has created a location with a sought after dish, available at only one location in Red Deer - Vietnamese Subs and Rolls.
