New owners for teachers’ store
School House Teaching Supplies Ltd., a fixture at 2014 Douglas St. for nearly two decades, is under new ownership. Lynn-Dell and Lekh Goorachurn, who acquired the retail operation earlier this year and are planning a grand re-opening on June 8, say the store continues to carry a wide range of classroom books and teaching materials but has increased its French-language inventory. Lekh operates an online business selling French learning publications called www.ouiforkids.com while Lynn-Dell is a teacher-librarian in the School District 63. The long-time existing staff members remain. The store is open 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and is closed Sundays. Call 250-385-9030.
