Langley City will be the new home for an oil and vinegar specialty store. I’m referring to All of Oils (www.allofoils.com), the creation of Glenn Pineau and Kimm Brickman, who are preparing to launch their second location in the city with a grand opening celebration early next month.
“After more than a year looking for the perfect spot in Langley for this expansion, and after having to walk away from a couple of deals that were very near completion, a newly built, very stylish building in the downtown core on Douglas Crescent caught our eye,” Pineau said.
“We are excited to be part of the downtown Langley shopping district and are looking forward to be part of what everyone hopes will be a revitalization of the entire downtown area in the coming years,” he added.
The company, which sells oils and vinegars, already has a store in South Surrey, in the Shops at High Street on King George Boulevard.
Now, they’re setting up halfway between Douglas Park and the Langley Mall (Army & Navy).
Their grand opening celebration runs noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday, July 5 at 20450 Douglas Cres.
BYPASS ABUZZ There always seems to be business changes afoot on the bypass.
At Glover Road, there’s a construction team feverishly working on the Porsche dealership – the latest addition to luxury car dealerships developing an auto mall of sorts at this intersection.
Porsche Centre Langley is set to open this fall under the direction of general manager Aly Jiwani. This is one of the OpenRoad Auto Group properties, which is transforming the 1.9-acre site between Collection Drive and the Langley Bypass into a 42,000-squarefoot dealership.
Acura Langley, which is actually located in Surrey at present, is moving in the near future.
The Acura of Langley dealership is going to leap frog a little further east – closer to the high-end car dealers and closer to Dilawri Group’s Mercedes-Benz Langley.
BRIDAL SEASON Also new on the bypass, as of April, is the introduction of another bridal shop.
House of Vienna -Bridal by Image in White is a family-owned business that’s been passed down from one generation to another.
Now, in addition to its home base in Prince George, this company has recently expanded to include a second location in Langley – in a space that has had a bit of a revolving door through the past few years.
Located almost directly below the 204th Street overpass, the House of Vienna is helping cinch Langley’s reputation as the place to shop for all things bridal.
The family spent more than two decades cultivating relationships with vendors all around the world and perfecting their collection. Now, I guess, it’s time to expand beyond Prince George. Welcome to Langley House of Vienna, and kudos for announcing your arrival with a grand opening that raised nonperishable food items for the Langley Food Bank.
