Haven't we always had a drawer full of "slobby/sloppy clothes"? You know, the ones we wear when nobody is looking? The drawer that is filled with favorites that nobody outside of our kids and partner is allowed to see. This drawer normally houses our pajamas, and also a variety of clothing. I have my "hair dying shirt", my "cleaning with bleach shirt", my "painting shirt", my gardening shirt (and shoes) and then there is a whole stack of my old t shirts that I wear to bake or cook or to just chill at home. The common denominator with all of these [...]

While most of Cottonwood was closed during the lock-down, our building projects kept moving forward. This week we began construction on our new freestanding retail pad located between Burger King & Earls. We have been getting some questions about which retailers will be in that building, and unfortunately all we can say right now is that we will make announcements on that project in the future. We expect completion of this building to coincide with the larger Save on Foods/Old Navy/Club 16/Cora project for early 2021. But you know...construction....anything can happen! We also wanted to show you a map of [...]
Update November 19th, 2020 Hi Everyone. As many of you now know, Dr. Bonny Henry mandated masks for all retail locations throughout the province today.

COVID-19 has thrown a wrench into a lot of plans & special days, and it's looking like Mothers Day 2020 (Sunday, May 10th) is going to be one of them.

Wash Less No Hanging No Dryer No Pilling Keep them out of the washing machine! Laundering is the #1 cause of wear and tear on knit wear. Because we often wear clothing items under our sweaters, and also because we don't tend to sweat a lot in our cold weather clothing, there is often less of a need to wash sweaters like we might with other clothing items. Good News....because washing machines are to sweaters what drugs are to human beings. They cause knits to stretch, shrink, fray, become misshapen, [...]

Leave in Oil Based Moisture: Apply a small amount of anti-fuzz oil into damp hair, and allow to air dry. We really like "It's a 10" Miracle Oil + Keratin".
