A couple days ago I visited The Travel Bug on Water Street, St. John’s, Newfoundland. It is the only one in the province now. I spoke with the young owner and she says it will not be franchised. I thought this a shame as it is one of my favorite stores. If I had the money I would open a bigger one in every mall in Canada! Of course, I would come up with a different name.
This store is located in a great place for people who frequent the downtown. I’m sure sales are good and visitors to our capital city would find some gems here.
If you like Tilley hats there is a nice selection. The much sought after packing cubes are here in fashionable colours. PacSafe shoulder bags and waist purses are displayed near Center of the store. Goop bottles and Fulton umbrellas are tastefully displayed.
If you are travelling and need a case for your maps, a journal to take with you, or luggage tags, you have quite a selection here. The staff is second to none. They give excellent advice, if you need any help.
