A big crowd welcomed the return of the Lee Family’s new grocery store in Fort Langley this morning. The official ribbon cutting occurred shortly after 9 am with the help of Mayor Jack Froese. Marcon’s Marco Paolella and Russ Wallbank, received a round of applause for the expert construction of the building. Store Manager, Andy Abreo and staff were acknowledged for their tremendous work in getting the store ready to be opened. Robert, Peter, Charlie and the entire Lee family have opened a new chapter in their service to the community. With its new name, “Lee’s Market” will have a fresh focus on local products. The past 37 years of service is evident in the store’s decor with memorabilia such as the old sign that Mark Unrau rescued from the fire and lovingly restored, the heritage photographs of the family and the village, the display of canoes, and a painting by Jack Turpin of “Peter’s Garden” from the old store.
