Roblin Boulevard Part 2
Between Cathcart and Lynbrook Drive are a number of businesses in the old Charleswood area. On the north side of Roblin heading west are homes until curiously named the Charleswood Technology Centre.
In the window are signs offering yoga classes. A search of businesses offering yoga doesn't indicate that such a business exists in the building.
edit: I just got a flyer today to say that Kripalu Yoga classes are taught at the Charleswood Technical Centre by Cindy Wuerch.
The business that are listed in 2008 are:
Dawson McLennan Certified General Accountants, a general accountants practice Avalon Institute Of Applied Science, a research and consultancy firm in environmental science Assure Lab Works, a drug testing lab Osorno, an environmental consultancy Centre For Education And Work Incorporated, a private education consultancy
I'll have to drop in one day to see if these listing are accurate. The building does seem geared to very small offices for businesses.
On the north side of Roblin is a commercial building that looks like a house. Since 2006, The Food Studio has been a teaching young and old how to cook. They occupy the main floor.
At one point, some years ago, the building was the home of a massage therapist.
Next door to the Food Studio and extending to Lynbrook Drive is a strip mall that contains Primerica, an insurance brokerage, Gallery Boutique and Salon, a nails shop and Surroundings, a draperies, blinds, linen and bathroom accessories store.
All in all, many small businesses and stores inhabit this section of Charleswood's old downtown.
