Had one too many pulled pork sandwiches? Tired of the same old burgers? Our business services manager Alan was feeling the same lunchtime blues, fortunately the cure was close at hand with Buy The Sea Fresh Seafood Market & Fish n' Chip Shop. With locations in Penticton and West Kelowna, they are well-known as purveyors of the freshest fillets in town… but they also cook up that same freshness on-site with every order of their mouth-watering fish and chips!

Getting to know your business and how we can better serve you, is extremely important to us. As you can see, Alan was not content to simply observe the goings on at Buy the Sea. After filleting a few salmon and making short work of a monster halibut, it was time to chow down on some fantastic fish and “talk turkey” with Buy the Sea owner, Mike Stokes.

Mike told us: “The Valley First staff are super-informative and they back up the great advice with excellent customer service. When you combine that with their low fees and great rates their isn’t much reason to look anywhere else.”

We asked Mike if he had any words of advice for the newly-minted entrepreneurs out there who are just starting off with their new business?

“Be conservative with your initial targets and very realistic with your expectations to ensure the financial resources you have available are sufficient. Starting a new business is exciting and it’s easy to get overly ambitious with your initial expectations, so keep that temptation in check and things will go a lot smoother.”
