Today's guest blog post is brought to you by Whitney, Registered Holistic Nutritionist and part of the Business Development Team at Spud!
Healthy food is in the building! We are so excited to partner with Hollyburn Properties to provide residents in Vancouver and Calgary (Ottawa and Toronto coming soon!) with a healthy, convenient, and affordable grocery shopping option. SPUD is a local company, our warehouse in East Van, and we focus on selling local products. Our mission is to change the way we think about grocery stores and the way we get our food.
Our business model hinges on our delivery system- deliver fresh, organic, and healthy food and goods to our customers’ doorsteps. We make shopping healthy as easy as possible. For the residents of Hollyburn Properties we deliver right to you. We offer a full grocery store of fresh produce, healthy snacks, cooking and baking ingredients. Anything that can be bought at a brick and mortar grocery store, you can order through us! If we don’t carry a product, your suggestions are taken very seriously (as long as they are legal and don’t contain any of our “banned ingredients”).
Because we deliver your groceries to you, you have more time in your day to exercise, spend valuable time with friends and family, or to cook with those around you! We don’t want you to waste your precious time in lines! Did you know the average Canadian wastes 5 years standing in lines over the course of their lives!? That is crazy.
Interested in what kind of products we sell? Check out this list of categories:
- Produce (a variety of seasonal and staple fruits and vegetables)
- Grocery (anything from oil & vinegar to nuts & seeds, and cereal, granola & oatmeal)
- Baked Goods (artisan breads, bagels & English muffins, loafs, etc.)
- Meat & Seafood
- Health & Beauty (from sunscreen, face wash, and shampoo, to toothbrushes)
- Gifts & At Home (candles, plants, salt lamps, and more!)
We also have Meal Kits pre-planned to make shopping even more seamless! Log in to our site and search for “kits” to find an assortment of logically grouped items, just begging you to throw together in a meal. For example, check out our Guacamole Kit, Angus Cheeseburger Kit, and our Tex Mex Night Kit.
We are so stoked to be servicing Hollyburn Properties, we are offering a special deal. For any HP resident, we are giving you $15 off your first FIVE orders above $50! In addition, if you are a first-time SPUD user, we are offering you $30 off $60, that’s 50%!
P.S. Please feel free to stop and talk to our delivery people if you happen to run into them! They love to answer questions, chat organics, or just to chat about the weather.

On April 21, Hollyburn Properties will be hosting a Town Hall Meeting about our new mixed-use rental development proposal at 1301-1333 Lonsdale Avenue. We hope you can join us!
Designed by Francl Architecture, this industry-leading 144 suite rental building will add significant rental supply to a neighbourhood with a vacancy rate of just 0.2%.
This proposal will contribute much needed rental housing in North Vancouver, and offers 32 family-oriented rental suites.
The project also includes an improved streetscape and public realm with patio space for street-front businesses along Lonsdale Avenue and West 13th Street. Weather protection for pedestrians and the addition of new trees and pavement treatments will enhance the area. A new public mews will link the proposed building’s open space to City Hall and the Civic Plaza.
Hollyburn Properties has deep roots in North Vancouver and has been operating rental housing in the city for almost 40 years. This will be our third purpose-built rental building in Central Lonsdale.
Come meet the project team, view our proposal, fill out a comment form and share your feedback.
We hope you are as excited about this project as we are. We would love to hear your thoughts and ideas on this new rental initiative and hope to see you at the Town Hall Meeting!

"North Vancouver native Jess Nelson would love to move back to the North Shore – but no landlords will have her four-year-old mutt Red. In a rental market with less than one per cent vacancy, the already competitive task of finding a home has been made almost impossible for people with pets, she’s found."
