Zellers is coming back!

Hudson’s Bay recently announced that Zellers is coming back in the form of pop-up stores, and an online store.

You can see my photos of Zellers when it largely closed back in 2012. I also did a photo essay when Target left Canada.

Weather conditions, especially the best ones for photography, can change so rapidly.

Drumheller, which is actually a couple hours away, looks similar in places and is also known for dinosaurs.

I’d like to share my favourite photos from the visit. Enjoy!
