Visitor centre moving from Grizzly Plaza to Victoria Road

The Revelstoke visitor centre is moving from Grizzly Plaza into the storefront on Victoria Road previously occupied by Clearview Computers.

The Revelstoke Visitor Information Centre will be moving off Grizzly Plaza this summer into the retail space on Victoria Road previously occupied by Clearview Computers.

“Clearview Computers works great for us because now we have parking and visual access,” said Brydon Roe, the President of the Chamber of Commerce, which runs the visitor centre.

The visitor centre has previously been located in the front office of the Canadian Avalanche Centre, right in Grizzly Plaza. Roe said the move is being made so there’s more space and because they can secure a longer lease.

“We wanted to make sure we have the space for a little bit longer than we need it,” he told the Times Review, adding the Chamber may look into using the space in the winter.

“At this point we only have it for the summer but we do have the right with the landlord to extend it if we wish.”

Roe said he wasn’t worried about the impact of moving the visitor centre away from the foot traffic in Grizzly Plaza.

“Grizzly Plaza is definitely a great area but we still think we can capitalize,” he said. “We’re excited about the bigger space and the visual you get from the road. We think we’ll get a lot more drivers knowing where it is because with Grizzly Plaza you don’t get that visual.

“What we lose there we might gain from the road, we hope.”

The new location is at 111 Victoria Rd. East, just east of Mackenzie Avenue.
