Located on Alderbridge Way, just west of No. 3 Road, the local specialty food store shut down its Burnaby location earlier this week.

Owner Annie Muljiani said she's frantically moving the contents of her Burnaby store to Richmond.

Muljiani, who was unavailable for an interview but did reply via e-mail, said: "I am in chaos mode at the moment...I am in the middle of a huge move to Richmond as Burnaby is closing down."

According to its website, Galloway's was purchased by the Muljiani family in 1974 from Johnston Galloway, who sold fruits and nuts from a cart in Gastown in the 1930s. It remained "under the watchful eye" of Annie Muljiani.

According to its Facebook page, Galloway's has an "inventory sale" until April 30.
