Consequently, we set out for their Burnaby location instead; this actually worked out quite well, as it allowed for a short period of shopping to be done at Metrotown before returning to Richmond to prepare for dinner.
An aspect of Tea Plus, the food court stall from which the above drink was purchased, that I feel necessary to point out is their use of a unique plastic shaker that adheres to a shaking machine. From what I've seen, they don't get too busy, but it's quite interesting that they have such a machine installed as to save physical labour from employees.
Back to Richmond, I finally had the chance to check out Tony Moly, which apparently had opened near Christmas of last year.
The two Korean girls in the store weren't as attentive and eager to assist as the ones back home, though they did prove to be very friendly when I inquired about the B1A4 poster and mask sheet. I was told that neither item was for purchase, though the poster would be free with any store purchase, and the mask sheet was simply given to me upon asking. Talk about the perks of asking!
I acquired their last travel beauty bag too.
