Our hours for September 24, 2017

Hello friends, we hope you will understand our shortened hours on Sunday September 24, 2017.  We will close at 3:30 so that many of the people who work at Octopus can attend a celebration of life for Penny Sanger. She was a dear friend to the store, and the neighbourhood, and really when you get down to it, she was a dear friend in the world. A lovely, and committed woman who will be sorely missed.
