LETTER: Surrey’s PricePro offers great deals for a great cause

The Editor,

A friend told me about philanthropist John Volken’s PricePro grocery store at 6911 King George Boulevard that is manned by young people coming off drug and alcohol addictions and the wonderful buys one can find there.

Since we live in South Surrey, PricePro was not on my radar. However, being in that area the other day, I decided to pop in.

Now, I’m hosting a dinner for a Grade 3 class reunion with the meat dish being crockpot pulled pork. Already squirrelled in my freezer are a multitude of containers of pulled pork butt from various local grocery stores.

The other day, I put the pork butt from PricePro in the crockpot and was so stunned and pleased that I just had to let the public know.

It was lean, fell right off the bone, almost melted in your mouth – and was about twothirds the price! Will I go back again for other products? A resounding yes.

So this is just a little plug for them. It’s a worthwhile cause and a delightful bargain. From now on it’s on my radar.

Marlene Penner, Surrey
