One of the biggest reasons why I love shopping locally is because of the people, the business owners. When my family first moved to Airdrie three years ago, I immediately located my nearest Benjamin Moore - a must where I live! That's where I met Pete, the owner of Airdrie Paint and Decor. It was't too long before he asked me about my maiden name... a very odd question for someone I just met! It turned out that Pete used to play floor hockey with one of my brothers, years ago, in Victoria! Small world! I love this story because that's how local business should be: making connections with people, building relationships and supporting one another in our business endeavours! Pete carries paint and home decor, and his staff are always available to help!
