THE NEWS OF THE ZELLERS REVIVAL engendered such an excited response this week, you would think this place was retail utopia.
Unique products at rock-bottom prices in a pleasant environment.
For Kamloops residents, Zellers doesn’t have a lot going for it anymore.
It has a name, it has a logo and it has a sketchy-looking bear mascot named Zeddy who doesn’t wear pants, like a discount Winnie the Pooh.
And it has one more thing: memories.
