There are still a few Mac's in Vancouver. One on Broadway and Hemlock and one on Davie and Bute for sure. Probably a few others. There were a few in Edmonton before I left. Not many though. There was a Winks that became a Mac's but kept the Wink's (winking owl) sign.
Tons of 7-11 stores everywhere.
What I haven't seen in ages are Red Rooster Stores.  Any of those still around ???

Wow, so I guess mac's is going the way of Becker's. I remember their slushies used to be awesome.
What was red rooster?

the nearest macs to me is about a 10min drive, not particularly handy but there are ones in my area

There was one near mccowan and Eglinton but I dunno if it is still there. Same 10 min drive. Not very convenient. I'd go just for the smell though.

You mean Mac's Milk?


They still exist, but not too many are in my area. They used to offer Sunshine Joe coffee, but they now offer Seattle's Best Coffee.

There used to be a Mac's in my area (about a 15 to 20 minute walk), but it was closed two years ago. I simply have no idea why.


Anyways, what does everyone have to say about Rogers GameCentre Live? Anyone seen these commercials on the TV lately?


Ah, thanks for that.

I haven't been in a Mac's since 2000. It was the very same one at Jane & Yorkwoods what I used to go to as a kid. I think they had their own brand of coffee back then. Sadly, that one shut down a few months later.

Never had that, but I have had really lazy people who would ask for way too many favors. I had one guy who wanted me to give him a $10 discount AND meet him where he was, which is Kennedy station. Considering I live in the west end, that's not happening.


I have no problem giving discounts within reason as I've gotten some discounts from sellers.

You can tell though who is blantantly trying to rip you off.

Yeah, before when I was extremely broke I just accepted the lower offers, as long as they weren't too ridiculously low. One time I was selling a game to this middle aged Asian guy and my asking price was $30 but he wanted it for $20 (even though at the time it was a pretty new game that sold for $50 including tax) since I needed the money I I gave it to him for $20, which I regret. He had a good car when he came to pick it up. I was thinking "you can afford a decent car like that but you can't pay the extra $10 for the game?" He contacted me again for another game a few days later but I just ignored his text. Don't want to get low balled by the same person twice....:rolleyes:

I love it when they tell you what you're going to accept...
"my offer for your 500 computer is 150, when can I pick it up"
