As I work on our new web site, I have to ask... in your opinion, is G+ dead? :) I mean, while I appreciate each and everyone of you being in our G+ community, the platform itself is really ... stagnant. Thoughts? Should we just close it down and focus our efforts on our main site, YouTube, Facebook page and Twitter? Or would you rather us start really pushing content here on G+?

There are plenty of wine making stores in Barrie, but Northern Lights is much more. These folks actually know their stuff, and genuinely care about the quality of the wine they put out. But most importantly, they actually understand it (this seriously sets them apart from the typical "we toss yeast onto a boxed kit and hope for the best" shop). You'd think they owned a vineyard with how good they are at making wine. I've used several of the local shops, but the wine I get from Northern Lights is consistently better. 5 stars for quality, 5 stars for service. Can't say enough good things. Try them once, you'll save a bundle and never want to buy wine at the LCBO again.

This is a liquidation store. One reviewer moans about the return policies and potential for defective hardware that comes from a liquidation store, but those things are not unique to Liquidation Nation--this isn't Walmart, it's blow-out stock, liquidation stock, bankrupt stock, and so-on. Think of it like a glorified yard sale. It's freaking awesome. I too have had my share of defective things from Liquidation Nation, but that's okay. They are always EXCELLENT when it comes to exchanges. If your lanterns don't work, they will let you stand there and open every box until you find the ones that work. Be patient and enjoy the deals! I bought a phone and the caller ID screen didn't work. I brought it back and we stood there at the front opening multiple boxes (many of the phones shared the defect), and we found one that worked. Problem solved. I walked away with a phone for $20 less than I would have paid elsewhere, with only the minor inconvenience of having to be a little more patient. Most recently, I bought an RC helicopter (a boyhood fantasy). Got it home and it didn't work. Bummer. I paid $15 for it. Looking online, they're $80. So I went back to the store first chance I got and they again, very graciously allowed me to open up another one and *test it* in store to be sure I got one that worked. Cash refunds are not an option (in store credit only) and that may be a slightly higher risk if buying a big ticket item such as a fridge, TV or digital camera, but if it boiled down to it, no doubt they'll let you try it out before you commit. Again though, when I've needed to return a defective product, they've always replaced it with one that works, so no harm done. Only time I took in-store credit is when we bought a mat for the front door and found it didn't match our decor, so we exchanged it for another, cheaper mat and ended up getting in store credit for the difference. If you like garage sales and understand the risks in that kind of purchase and are willing to be a bit more patient with the kind people who work in the store, then by all means, check it out! This place is a browser's paradise. We go about once per month and often find something we didn't see the month prior. We get AMAZING deals on essentials such as dishwasher detergent and even pillows. Rugs / mats are in full supply and there's always a good selection of toys and treats for the kids.

The school pictures taken by Lifetouch for _both_ of our children are terrible, at the fault of the photographer. It's as if the photographer just stood the kids in front of the camera, looked up from their iPhone lazily, and pressed the shutter button. "Next!" So disgusted at your [lack of] quality, and the prices are atrocious. $33 for the first package in order to get a single 8x10, and left with all these stupid leftovers. If it was at least a nice shot I wouldn't be so outraged, but they're taken like a lazy amateur. You have us right where you want us because you know every parent MUST buy their kid's school photos every year. Disgusting.
