Gifts were returned to customer

I would like to thank the great folks at the Beanery and the manager, Brad, and his staff at Shoppers Drug Mart.

Dear Editor:

Before Christmas I had purchased Christmas cards and Visa gift cards at Shoppers Drug Mart in Summerland. I left Shoppers and somewhere along the way or near the Beanery, I lost the small white Shoppers Drug Mart bag.

After retracing my steps, the bag was not to be found. I went back to Shoppers to see if I had left the bag there and after talking to the manager, Brad, found out the bag was not left there.

I repurchased the cards and gift cards again, and Brad and his staff were very helpful and caring.

Some weeks later, I had a call from Brad to come to Shoppers because my bag had been returned by the owner of the Beanery.

They had tried on their own to trace the owner of the bag to no avail and decided to turn the bag back in to Shoppers Drug Mart. Brad knew right away who the owner was and returned the cards and gift cards all intact.

I would like to thank the great folks at the Beanery and the manager, Brad, and his staff at Shoppers Drug Mart. I am glad to live in the small community of Summerland where honesty and the caring side of its people show in many ways! Thanks to all involved!
