Grand Re-Opening

Valley First Insurance to celebrate grand re-opening at Village Green Mall
January 31, 2013

Penticton, B.C.—Valley First Insurance at Village Green Mall is celebrating its grand re-opening with an in-branch ribbon cutting ceremony at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 6.

The insurance office, which moved a short distance from its former location in the mall in 2012, is a pioneer in the Valley First family – it is the first branch to redesigned with the new, modern look that will become a benchmark for all Valley First Insurance branches. Not only does the branch have a look and layout, it also has a new manager – local insurance expert Danise Hales.

“I’m thrilled to be leading such a terrific branch,” says Hales. “The look and feel is so inviting for our clients and to be the first to get the makeover is something special. The modern finishing really makes us stand out.”

“A lot of clients have had really positive comments. We’re excited about marking our grand re-opening and hope our valued clients and community members come and join our celebration.”

Hales is also quick to add that while the new branch design is eye-catching it is what’s underneath that really counts.

“Although we’ve got a flash new branch, we’ve got the substance to match. With the more welcoming, relaxed environment, our insurance experts and our clients feel more comfortable.”
