I visited Rogers the other day, as I tend to do whenever I visit Winnipeg. It’s weird, at this point I hardly know any of the employees anymore. Robin was working when I visited though, and he gave me some sad news. It’s closing within a month! I worked there for 2.5 years, and before BioWare, it was the best job I’d ever had. It was a great group of people I worked with, most of whom became true friends. We had awesome regular customers, and we got free movie and game rentals 5 days before release. And now this will be the last time I visit while it exists. Next time I visit it’ll probably be a mattress store or something… I don’t like that Winnipeg keeps changing in my absence. Why can’t it just stay the way I leave it, like I remember it?
End of an era.
