Auto Electric Service: Locally Owned Since 1943!
Being a fixture of the Warehouse District for almost 70 years, Auto Electric Service knows a thing or two about the secret to longevity. “For us to be successful, our customers need to be successful,” Branch Manager Brent Kulcsar says in a resolute manner. When asked the secret to the company’s lasting success, he adds, “Building a relationship is what we really encourage.”
A company with humble origins, Auto Electric Service Ltd. was established in 1943 when founders G.W. Grant and G. Dawson purchased Bannister Auto Electric and opened their first location at 2536 Victoria Avenue. In 1946, the head office was relocated to 1845 Broad Street. Eventually a new space was built at 1360 Broad Street in 1956, where they still remain today.
Pearl Hardware: One-Stop Shop for Unique Home Furnishings!
While working as a general contractor prior to opening Pearl Hardware in 2013, Chay Kitts has always been aware of the importance of both aesthetics and comfort in home décor. “Comfort is the new chic,” he boldly declares, while seated on an impeccable well-worn leather sofa that one might come to find in a library belonging to a turn of the century aristocrat or perhaps a distinguished statesmen. “Our demographic is really anyone who wants good furniture or fixtures that are both functional and made well,” says the Moose Jaw native.
New to the District: Adrenaline Strength and Conditioning
I’ve always been amazed at how the human body can adapt to basically anything,” Derek Becker says, reclining back in his chair seated behind a makeshift desk in his newly renovated fitness facility. What used to be the home of Milne’s Moving and Storage has been transformed into Adrenaline Strength and Conditioning, a state-of-the-art space located at 1301 Osler Street.
Coming from Yellow Grass, SK, a small community an hour southeast of Regina, Derek did not have many opportunities available to him for athletic development, with the exception of hockey and basketball. “Yellow Grass didn’t have a gym so I started working out in my basement to get better at sports. I quickly fell in love with lifting weights,” he adds.

Gastro Brew Festival 2015 - Saturday, October 3rd 2015
On Saturday, October 3rd, Regina’s Warehouse Business Improvement District hosted the first annual Gastro Brew Festival located at the former CP Railyard site next to Dewdney Avenue.
This year’s Gastro Brew Festival was a day-long celebration of the district’s unique heritage enjoyed through food, drink, art, and local entertainment. The main event area contained a beer garden featuring the latest offerings from three of the district’s own craft breweries: Bushwakker Brew Pub, Rebellion Brewing Company and District Brewing. Local food trucks including Bon Burger, Budz Burger, and Prairie Smoke and Spice BBQ were on-hand throughout the day to provide great tasting dishes and complimentary food pairings to our brewers’ signature beers.
