How much?

Last week my partner and I went out for burgers. There is a certain pub in town that serves the best burger and has the best patio – the people watching is fantastic! It was a Saturday night so there was the usual parade of stags and stagettes, which is always so entertaining. Since we knew we wanted burgers we did not look at the menu and ordered swiftly from our prompt and friendly server. The service was excellent, the burgers were outstanding and the entertainment on the stroll did not disappoint. The unexpected aspect of the evening was when we got our bill and discovered that our burgers were $26 each – crazy!! Be assured, I am in no way upset at the restaurant, I am only shocked at what a restaurant needs to charge in order to stay in business. With rising costs of food, transportation and staffing, restaurants are all needing to raise their prices to survive. Of course it is not just restaurants that have raised prices - everything seems to have gone up in price. So now is the time to buy with care.

Since Ruby Tuesday’s debut on the Whistler retail stage, we have been focused on affordable quality products from local designers. Most of our jewellery designers are Canadian and many are local to BC and the Sea-to-Sky Corridor (we do have some imported brands but I hope you won’t hold that against me). Since birthdays are always around the corner and Christmas is on the horizon, buying gifts is just part of what we spend our money on. I am so very grateful for the support of everyone who has shopped with us and so are our local designers who benefit from that same support.

For a gift idea for this next month, may I suggest the Whistler Co-ordinates necklace by local designer Helen Chan of Lazy Maisie Creates? If you are in need to some fun sneakers we have the Vionic sneakers in summer colours at 25% off (now that’s a savings!) and for new stock this week, we have the Aries backpack from Matt & Nat available in Frog (green) and black and the Eclipse earrings by Pursuits in amber and grey.

Visit us in the Whistler village on Sunday - Thursday from 10am - 7pm and Friday and Saturday from 10am - 8pm. Or, if you can't make it here in-person you can always shop all of our new arrivals, jewellery, handbags, footwear, housewares, gifts, sales, and more on our website!
