I’m still processing all the recent changes to Picard. Yesterday I just realized that Natural Livity restaurant has closed. The Uptown Diner restaurant has moved into Kathryne’s across from the shacks and Kathryne’s has moved to Portsmouth where the Adaj used to be. The Sol Food Cafe is closed. The Soul Space Spa has moved from behind Bullseye Pharmacy to next to Hope Restaurant…which brings me to why I am writing this post.
Where Soul Spa used to be is “All Stationery Supplies”. I went to go check it out the other day thinking this is a good thing since we don’t have a university bookstore right now. On a good day, office supplies can usually be found at “The Cafe” on campus, James Store or Picard Grocery. This new place had standard office supplies, but also things like scrubs, clipboards, pen lights, reflex hammers, medical gloves, sphygmomanometers and stethoscopes. They also had a shelf of children’s toys and other non-stationary items. Their hours are from 9-5 M-F and 9-1 on Saturday. Phone-767-245-3504. Check them out, you may be able to find some gems that you need for your ICM exams.
PS. I was recently with some friends and we asked the guys at the Hope restaurant why they named their restaurant Hope. One of the workers cleverly responded, “because we hope the students pass their exams”. Too funny.
