It's on 32nd Ave NE, east of Deerfoot about 2 or 3 blocks.
I've never bought anything there. Prices are higher than Costco clearance.
Other stuff is mostly junk. They had sriracha Slim Jims that were dated Nov 2018.
It's not for RFDers. :)

There's a few stores around that simply buy clearance items at costco and sell em for minor mark up (ie, Morrows of Drumbo)

All I can think of is the South Park episode where the kids spent the whole episode trying to return a machine like this.

Hey guys,

I don't know if anyone can help me with this, I love making slushies and I have a Blendtec blender, would this Margaritaville machine be better at making slushies? Anyone have any experience comparing the 2? Thanks for the help in advance.

@JL23 - While I can't speak from experience about the Blendtec blender technology, the Margaritaville machine usually gets praise due to the smooth silkiness of the shaved ice it spits out. Normal blenders use blades to crush/chop ice, but these machines use an ice shaver to get it all snowy-like, and then a blender cup to combine the shaved ice with the flavouring of choice. Regular blenders can leave hard chunks of ice in your drink which is not everyone's desire.

I used to work for a commercial frozen concoction supplier, and I always eyed up these Margaritaville machines because they use a similar technology. Hoping I find one locally!

Hope that helps.

I've had one for over a year now, same model as this one. I've been happy with it, it makes restaurant quality drinks. The mixes available here suck though, I've had to get good ones from the states.

It kind of makes sense since it does the same thing to ice as a food mill does to mashed potatoes: Hits each piece of ice exactly once instead of just whizzing it around and hoping that all of it hits the blade.
Do you not have anything else to do rather than argue with strangers on the internet
Nope. That's why I'm on the internet arguing with strangers. If I had anything better to do I'd probably be doing it.
