‘Samies, Calgary, Alberta’

Samies – “A typical structure for its era, this corner store once housed a laundry, rooming houses on the top floor and a small grocery/confectioner in the front. It was the primary provider for local residents who did not have automobiles or access to public transit. Once found throughout the city, most corner stores have been turned into other businesses or torn down and replaced with housing. Hillhust-Sunnyside is fortunate to have a number of these outlets still available and accessible.
