Looking to #supportlocal and our non-big box economy? Then this itinerary is for you.
Our shopping guide to North Delta will take you from old-fashioned hardware stores to authentic barber shops, for everything from haircuts to deli platters. Here we go...
Southridge Hardware is family-owned and operated, located in the heart of North Delta. A real Tim Taylor haven, they offer everything from skate sharpening and paint to nuts & bolts and good, old-fashioned handyman know-how service that will be helpful for any summer DIY project you have in store.
While at Nordel Centre, stop by Cravings Coffee for a cup of joe before getting cleaned up with a summer buzz at Carmine's Nordel Barbers. This authentic barbershop, complete with the colorful spirals outside, has been cleaning North Delta men up with a shave and a haircut (and color) for over 40 years now. It's also a great spot to refill your manly hair necessities like beard wax and shaving cream.
You'll find everything you need for an Instagram-worthy all-star charcuterie at Altmaerker German Sausage House and Deli. A German deli run by the Till family, it has a reputation for delicious deli sandwiches, gift basket creations, picnic supplies, as well as gluten-binding-filler-free homemade sausages (a must-try for summer BBQ season!).
For closet finds, Spektra Reflections of Home is a great shop offering unique gifts from head to toe. Cheery earrings and casual staples for our West Coast lifestyle are abundant here, with a mix of trendy home decor from pillows to throws to makeover you and your ambiance.
Watershed Artworks Gallery Shop makes supporting local easy, and easy on the eyes, at the North Delta Community Centre. A non-profit organization, it sells unique wearable and hangable artwork from local artisans, open daily from 10 - 3. Note that hours are subject to change, so always check with their website and social media channels for the latest hours.
