“How to describe Luke’s? It’s a general store, grocery and pharmacy for hipsters. Order a macchiato, buy some beans from Bow and Arrow, browse through one of Calgary’s best vinyl collections, buy a gift, go downstairs for food, stationary, and all kinds of stuff that you really do need. There’s even a post office!! ”
