Starting on April 14, 2016 a butcher shop named the Alia Halal Meat & Deli Mart in Quadra Village will be allowing customers to pay for all products in the store entirely with tetlas.
The shop is located at 2618 Quadra Street in Victoria across from the Fairway grocery store. It is an old fashioned butcher shop with a Middle Eastern atmosphere. All of their meat is organically raised, grass fed, free run, free range, hand slaughtered and local.
This butcher shop supplies a dozen restaurants. We're hoping some or all of them may join the tetla economy.
