So all that hype over the past couple months about the retail space on the corner of Davie and Howe culminated in the grand opening of Caya this past Friday.
What is Caya? It’s a Telus flagship store built specifically for our community, and it’s the first of its kind in Canada. That said, I’m still not 100 percent sure what Caya is, aside from an aesthetically gorgeous retail space. And maybe that, in itself, is enough. As far as I understand, the store is also a mixed-use community space. Seriously, go check it out. Reaching out to the GLBT community is a very smart move by Telus. Proceeds from sales within the store also directly benefit community programs like Out in Schools.
Here are some shots from the opening. Congratulations to Kenn Hamlin for spearheading such an amazing and ambitious community/corporate partnership.
