Granville Island + Olympics? No Problem.

by - Thursday, February 18, 2010

Getting around Granville Island during the Olympics is not a problem. Despite early concerns over crowds for special events there have been plenty of empty parking places on the island and ... no congestion.

Worried about the temporary parking fees? We'll take care of it.

From now until March 1, 2010 we are offering to pay for your 2 hour parking when you make a purchase of $50 or more (before taxes) at Maiwa or Maiwa Supply on Granville Island.
To sweeten the deal even more we'll offer you a free glass of Chai at our Maiwa Store.

The Details:
Customers will receive an instant discount of $6 when they purchase goods totaling $50 or more before taxes. There is no need to bring a parking receipt. Offer valid until March 1st, 2010 when parking returns to normal. Offer valid only at the Granville Island stores: Maiwa and Maiwa Supply.

  1. I am wondering why Maiwa never carries anything from Andhra Pradesh - that one state alone has the greatest diversity in cottons.

  2. Thanks for your comment. Actually most of our handwoven ikat cotton comes from Andhra Pradesh. We work with several artisans in this state and bring in amazingly beautiful naturally dyed ikat and blockprinted scarves and shawls. We also use ikat and kalamkari cotton fabrics in many of our garments.
