South Shuswap is growing its business world.

That Damm Market

Dean and Sherry Damm opened That Damm Market May 15 on the Trans-Canada Highway in downtown Sorrento.

The store has a bakery with homemade bread and daily lunch specials Monday to Friday, as well as groceries, homemade soup, liquor, beer and cigarettes.

The Damm Market also has the Sears Catalogue outlet  and the Purolator courier.

“We have a little of everything,” says Dean. “We have a little coffee area where people can enjoy a muffin and chat  with each other.”

The Damms have lived in Sorrento for 13 years and  gave up driving truck for the store.

“It was getting a little bit crazy and dangerous; I did it for 32 years,” he says. “This place was for sale. It was kinda rundown so we spent a month cleaning and renovating.”

Dean says he is learning the business every day.

“It’s a tough business but we’re trying every day and I enjoy being home.”

• Chinese Garden

The Chinese Garden is serving Cantonese style and a little bit Szechuan.

There are 32 seats inside the restaurant located at the Market Place Mall but the service is primarily focussed on take-out.

Chinese Garden is open Tuesday to Friday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday and Sunday 4 to 8 p.m. and  closed Monday.

Subway Sorrento

Sandeep Mahal has owned a Subway Restaurant  in Chase for three-and-a-half years and recently opened one in Sorrento.

Subway serves basic sandwiches, muffins, soups, wraps and salads.

“We’re getting a good response from the local community,” Malal says. “We’re in a great location next to Munro’s right on the highway.”
