North Van evicts businesses just before Christmas

NORTH VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – Some businesses at Lonsdale and 3rd in North Vancouver are questioning the timing of eviction notices from the city for a development planned on the corner.

Randy Tarangul owns Schlockbuster Video and says while other businesses have found somewhere to move, the tight timeframe for him means staff layoffs are possible over the holidays.

“We’re one of the few video stores left, all the other video stores are shutting down, but we’re actually doing OK because we have very loyal customers,” he says.

“We’re running out of time. We only have I guess a week now to find a new location.”

Tarangul’s neighbours agree the timing is unfortunate but add the city has followed due process.
