A stationary store in a flood zone. They would be wise to keep their stock two feet from the floor. I had gone to Basin Basics at their previous location several times in the past only to find that they didn't have what I needed in stock. I was told they could order it from the store in Halifax but I needed the items right away. So, I ended up going to another larger stationary store a few kms away to get what I needed. If they don't carry a wider range of stock at similar prices their competitor just a few kms away will still get most of the local business. At least in the new location there will be ample parking space.
