    Hi Jimmy,
    Today, my girlfriend was not allowed to re-cycle our pop cans at the Terrace Save-On store even though we had already paid the recycling fee and had bought the product at your store. Is that legal, firstly?
    Secondly, if you have enough space for the pop, and take the re-cycling fee, why wouldn’t you have enough space for the empties?
    Thirdly, the B.C. Recycling Act says you have to take back the empties if you sell the product (although only 48 per day and no rusty, dented ones.)
    I am awaiting a reply within a month.
    Paul (and Gina)

    Could you please let me know what ingredients are in the Dragon Box mix in your bulk food section?
    Many thanks,

    Last year or maybe even the year before, when I was shopping at Save-On-Foods in New Westminster, BC, I was given “Body Zone” samples for shampoo and conditioner.

    It is the best shampoo and conditioner I have ever used on my hair. When I went to buy it, I was told that the store had decided not to carry it and they referred me to Overwaite. I contacted Overwaite and was advised they do not carry this product either.

    Still Body Zone is mentioned on your web pages and even in Wikipedia.

    Is it possible some of the private chains of yours carry this product? In the alternative, would you please advise me who manufactures it, as they may have other outlets.

    Thank you for your time and consideration.
