Meet Brenda Meier
For Brenda Meier, Prince George is the ideal mix of small town warmth and character and big city amenities and shopping. It is one of the reasons that she decided to stay here in the town that she grew up and went to school in. She would eventually start and raise her own family here. According to Brenda, it is still the ideal place for a family with its great schools, amazing parks and outdoor recreation, diverse culture and access to shopping and services. Yet in spite of having so many amenities associated with big cities, Prince George has always managed to maintain its inviting atmosphere, and the people who live here are never too busy to stop for a chat or to take time to help a fellow resident in need. Plus, Brenda adds, “you have the ability to be spontaneous and not have to worry about driving for hours for an event.”
Owning a business was a long-held dream for Brenda. “It is something I have always wanted to do,” she says. She started the business in 2009, and it opened up a whole new chapter in Brenda’s life. She is particularly grateful for the freedom and independence that it has afforded her in her professional life. Though it requires a lot of hard work, the payoff for Brenda is seeing the delight in the faces of her customers when they find that absolutely perfect gift or piece for their own home. One of the important guiding principles of business ownership for Brenda is providing personalized service. “I like walking into a store and having people remember me and I want that for my customers,” she says. Supporting the efforts of local artisans is also something that is important to Brenda, so part of her inventory is made up of arts and crafts by artisans from Prince George and the surrounding region.
Leisure time is something that Brenda tries to weave into her life, in spite of the demands of business ownership. One of her favourite ways to relax is to sit on her deck at her lakeside home in summer time and take in a good book.
