You need to look closer - there's huge differences in prices (between stores and also No Frills and Atlantic Superstore - prices are different on their identical own brand label).

I bake my own oatcakes - have only found them in AS at $3.50 for one box of Nairns.


Superstore is a bit of a half way house - if I had more cash that's probably where I would go.

At the moment, I am cash poor/time rich and fortunate in that NF/GT are on the same site here - so easy to jump from one to the other in one visit. I wouldn't want to have to drive around 3 or 4 stores if I was working full time or they were miles from each other (and the gas used wiped out the savings).

Did most of our shop for a family of 5 last night - about $100 in GT/NF. Will spend maybe another $20 in Walmart over the weekend and maybe $15 in the butcher. Not much different from the UK - except for booze.... which...

There's also a brew-it-for-you wine shop (actually there's 2) here. Works out about $3.50 a bottle (but you have to brew at least 29 bottles). All we have to do is pour on the yeast, go home for 4 weeks, then come back and bottle it. They charge $50 to do the rest (which I can't be bothered to do at home). Helps if you are not a discerning wine drinker I guess, but I have friends who are more so and use this service. You could start up in Brandon and make your fortune.

Hope the bug bites are easing.

Sorry. Big drift.
No No Frill or Atlantik superstore in Brandon so mute point . Obermayers as butcher store and specialty store but don't how much British stuff they r carrying... Superstore has a good selection of " foreign things" . Best thing u can do is to know ur farmer. I know someone selling beef , pork, lamb and know where to get fresh eggs ... Let me know Andrew .. I can get u some samples

Hi,

We are lucky here in Brandon we have a Scottish butcher, so we can get Ayrshire cut bacon, scotch pies, Haggis, Irish recipe sausages & great rib roasts, plus many other brit cuts.

Who is your contact?

Have a meeting with settlement services on Wed & Thur.

Regards

Andrew

Hi Andrew,

Surely we are ready for the new life in Winnipeg and looking forward to seeing you too. I want to believe settling down is smooth in Brandon with your family already established.

Thanks and hope to catch up.

Hello Avacon, thanks. The members of the team got it visa in reverse order. "C", there after "T" before "D", but all the same the team is complete

How are preparings going from your end, trust you are heading to Winnipeg soon.

Cheers and look forward to catching up with you in the future.

Hey Kaye, you were right about dancing round the room. I have been earnestly waiting for it and was over joyed when I got the passport request email. Thanks and do have a great day.

Avoid flagpoling in the late afternoon/early evening as Emerson gets busy with same day shoppers

Thanks for that advice, we plan to leave early in the morning from Brandon and go straight to the border, go in and come straight back out into Canada, will tell the US border security that we intend to go shopping and re-enter?

Should we get the Admin refusal or will this cause problems for future visits?

If we do go across the border, I take it because we are going in for less than 24 hrs, there will be no duty free entitlement on our return into Canada, or is there because we are landing?

We have our ESTA, will we still need to pay 6 bucks US each (Even the kids) for the pleasure?

Many thanks for all your wisdom over the past 18 months, you have been a great help....thanks.


Best regards

Andrew

The admin refusal shouldn't cause entry problems at a later date as many have done it. Nearest place to shop is Grand Forks an hour south of the border and there is very little else in between. Have you considered flagpoling at Boissevain south of Brandon? Only problem I see at that port is finding a CBSA officer who knows how to do a landing Yes you still need to pay the $6 entry.
