If you are born to shop, have a keen eye and killer instinct for trends and you have the ability to figure out what people want, then perhaps a role as a FASHION BUYER may be a great place to start. I must warn you, it’s not as easy has it looks, you need an analytical mind, a good understanding of retail math and be able to take harsh criticism most of the time.
As a buyer you are responsible for purchasing the product to sell in a retail environment. Your goal, along side your team-mates, is to build a department the provides your consumer with the best products at the right time at the right price. In addition to ordering product, you are also responsible for analyzing sales reports … more …

Aside from opening one month late, the new Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel was worth the wait. Just walk into the lobby and feel the warmth and welcome of the West Coast. While heading towards the Olympic cauldron I took a detour at the hotel’s cafe, Giovane.
Giovane is lively, sophisticated and it’s a cafe +bakery + deli. It seats 42 people and you can go in for your coffee, tea and pastries as well they have a little back wall of unique gift wares. Bread and pastries are baked fresh every day and to satisfy your sultry side, the deli offers a selection of sandwiches, cheeses and pizzas. If I lived in the Coal Harbour area again, I’d be hanging out here.
