The Cave opened in November 1993 as Britannia's school store.
The name of the store was determined by a student contest. It was felt that The Cave was an appropriate name for the store because firstly, it is the place of hibernation for Bruins and secondly, the name is synonymous with a 70's Vancouver nightspot, which was the place to go to meet up with friends and have a good time.
The Cave's mission is to
- meet the needs of our customers with an excellent level of customer service along with a variety of reasonably priced merchandise and
- provide Business students an educational opportunity to practice retailing skills learned in the classroom.
The Cave is operated by Marketing 11, Marketing 12, and Business Administrative Assistant 12 students and is an integral part of Britannia's Marketing Career Preparation program.
Business Administrative Assistant 12 and Marketing 12 students work as managers and partake in duties such as opening and closing the store, training employees, visual display, and making the daily deposit. Marketing 11 students are employed as sales associates and serve customers at lunch and recess.
The Cave is open for business Monday to Friday at recess and lunch.
