The first time I heard of the retail shop Zebra Club (3101 Granville Street) was when someone gave me a free coconut flavored lip-chap as a promotional item for the Granville Street shop. I thought it was the best smelling free lip-chap I have ever gotten and immediately made my friends smell it too. Weirdly enough, we have a video of us analyzing and sniffing this little tube of moisturizer. Ah…good times, and thus, my strongest memory of Zebra Club. Anyway, I don’t shop much at Zebra Club, but if you do, check out their wine and cheese customer appreciation night from 6pm to 10pm. Here’s the Facebook Event.
