Valley First

Feature Member: True Colours Paint & Window Coverings

With spring arriving early in 2015, so has home renovation season. To get the latest info on paint, colour palettes and blinds, Heather, one of our business banking experts, paid a visit to credit union member John Kelly at True Colours Paint & Window Coverings in Penticton.

While she was there, she discovered John and his team are Penticton’s only retailers of Cottage Paint, a clay-based paint that dries to a silky matte finish and remains porous and easy to sand or wet distress when dry.

During her visit, John also shared with Heather some kind words about Valley First: “I’d like to say thanks for believing in us. Without your help we would not have been able to purchase True Colours Paint and Window Coverings or introduce new products like Cottage Paint and our new line of bedding. We’ve also become a Hunter Douglas Showcase Dealer, the only one in Penticton. Bringing in new product lines is a big investment, but we’re already seeing it pay off.

“We’ve dealt with Valley First for years and are big supporters. We appreciate all Valley First does for the community. When the opportunity came to us to purchase the Benjamin Moore store in Penticton we were glad you were able to find a way to support us.”

John’s advice to other business owners: “Make sure you have proper financing in place, look at ways you can expand your business (new products or services) and watch your inventory and receivables. You can catch John and his team on Fairview Rd in Penticton. They’re also online and on Facebook.
