The End of the Line General Store in Lynn Valley, North Vancouver, is a local gem. It’s very popular with hungry hikers and mountain bikers. After exploring the adjacent trails they can treat themselves to hot and cold drinks, snacks, casual lunches and ice-cream. But it’s so much more than that! It’s also a treasure trove of local art (for purchase) old-style toys (the kind that don’t require batteries), penny candy (I think they might be 7 pennies now), corner store type groceries, an array of novelty items and, best of all, books by local authors! And now they’re also carrying The Grizzlies of Grouse Mountain by yours truly (with Rae Schidlo and Linda Sharp).
If you’re ever visiting North Vancouver it’s well worth the trip to the ‘End of the Line’. You’ll love the nostalgic feel, the outdoorsy vibe, the proximity to the best hiking/cycling our city has to offer, yummy food, artistic treasures and books. Great books.
