This is a guest blog post from Jordan, account manager extraordinaire at Martinizing by Stephen Cleaners in Calgary:
In every moment of your life where there is something of importance, it almost always involves dressing up and looking your best. Your first day at school, a first date, graduation, your first job, your wedding day, or maybe the first time you closed a big deal at work. Throughout all of these experiences you wanted to make sure you looked good. Why is that? Because when you look good, you feel good and you can be your best. When we clean your clothes: It’s right, it’s ready, or it’s free (so that you can be free and ready to do what’s right). At Martinizing by Stephen Cleaners, we help you save time to do the things that matter the most.
Martinizing by Stephen Cleaners is a Calgary-based, family owned and operated dry cleaning business. Since 1962, Martinizing has been committed to quality, community and the environment. We can make your garments look and feel like new again including dress shirts, suits, pants, blouses, skirts, curtains, blankets, jackets, purses, shining shoes, restoring Uggs and even more.
We have become a Value-Added Partner with Hollyburn, giving residents an exclusive discount to access the best dry-cleaning experience on the market. We’ve been voted Calgary’s Best Dry Cleaner 9 times for the Consumer Choice Awards. Try our dry cleaning services and receive $20 off your first order (that could be equivalent to five shirts!) Our company also includes complimentary pick up & delivery to your work, as well as minor alterations. Now that’s customer service.
We are excited to work with the Hollyburn community to help make those momentous moments in your life amazing! Call us today at 403.613.2555 or email at email@example.com.

It’s going to be an epic summer on the Shore! North Vancouver City Council unanimously approved the revival of Car Free Day on Lonsdale Avenue, highlighted this year with a 1,000-foot-long water slip and slide to run down the city’s main thoroughfare.
The event is organized by Slide The City, the Utah-based events organization credited with bringing touring slip-and-slide attractions to hundreds of cities across North America and around the world.
Covering four city blocks on Lower Lonsdale, Slide the City – North Vancouver, will take place on:
- Saturday, August 22nd, 2015
- From 11am – 6pm
- Beginning at Keith Road
- Ending at 3rd Street with a splash pool to stop
Mayor Darrell Mussatto characterized the plan as a “21st century soap box derby.”
“I think this is an exciting, family-friendly event that will bring all ages, not only from our community and the North Shore but also the broader region,” said North Vancouver City Councilor Linda Buchanan. “This is the opportunity for us to have an event that puts the City of North Vancouver on the map as being someplace that is fun and to come to hangout.”
The burgeoning track record of fun city initiatives (think proposed amphitheater and outdoor skating rink at the Lonsdale waterfront) is one reason among many to consider North Vancouver as a great place to call home. Interested in rental opportunities in the area? Hollyburn is currently developing Bridgewater, the first new-construction rental high-rise community in North Vancouver in over 35 years, located in the heart of the Civic Plaza.

At Hollyburn, providing quality rental housing has been our business for over 40 years. You might say we know a thing or two about how to rent an apartment! Currently, Hollyburn Properties owns and operates 76 rental apartment communities across Canada – 49 in Vancouver, 6 in Calgary, 19 in Toronto, and 2 in Ottawa.
We also have a responsibility to educate the public on the ins and outs of tenancy, as well as best practices that we have gleaned over the past 4 decades in this industry. For the second year now, we have offered a crash course to high-school students at King George Secondary on all things rental. Hollyburn has supported a long-term community partnership with City School at King George Secondary, an alternative, interactive mini-school program that utilizes the “city as their classroom.”
One of our senior property managers and building resident managers led the session in an apartment suite in Vancouver’s West End. Students were toured through the building to look at available amenities, laundry, garbage and recycling areas, parking and emergency exits, as well as through the apartment while conducting a mock “suite inspection report.” The course was then followed by an active Q & A.
Some of the items we covered:
- Applications for tenancy
- Credit checks
- Tenancy agreements
- Security deposits
- Landlord & renter’s responsibilities and rights
- How to set up hydro, tenant insurance, cable & wifi
- Maintenance requests
- Pet policies
- Move-in & out policy
- ...And much more!
Overall, the feedback was amazing! The students had a great time and learned a lot of new information, much of which they were not aware of before (for example, City by-laws around noise restriction.) Are you interested in setting up a similar opportunity at an educational institution you’re involved with? E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and let’s talk!
