How to Depill Your Sweater

Walk-Ins & Babies Welcome at Le Prix in Downtown Kitchener

The Le Prix space is wide enough for strollers, the bathroom has a change table, and there’s an accessible bathroom that can also be used to roll your stroller in if you need to use the washroom and don’t want to...
