Visitor Tips and News About Goats on the Roof
Great shop of knickknacks and awesome ice cream. Make sure to check out Cathedral Grove nearby for some huge trees.[Carl, 07/12/2014]
Just north of Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, in a little town called Coombs, there's a store that has goats on the roof. The goats hang around up there during the summer season, but come down for the winter months. The store sells a lot of interesting stuff, so if you miss the goats, you can still have a fun shopping experience.[Jeanette, 02/02/1999]
