Kimberley Byers may be the new owner of Creekside Home Decor, but she’s not a new face. She’s been working at the beloved store since it opened in 2002 — and she worked at the sister store in Abbotsford before that. What’s more, former owner Gail Roscoe is NOT going to be a former employee now that Byers is in charge. You’ll still be able to visit with Roscoe when the store re-opens in March.
“Gail’s still working with us, and I’m really happy for that. I couldn’t have done it without her,” Byers says.
Roscoe is stepping back from ownership to focus on her family, and Byers is stepping up with fresh ideas for the space.
Refresh for spring
“We’re bringing in new furniture, new lighting, fresh paint, and a lot of new products,” Byers says. “We know people love the old store and you can be sure with our new renovations the store will still be warm and cozy with a modern farmhouse feel. We’re just re-configuring the layout so it makes more sense.”
The back of the store with all the primitive country decor will stay the same, but Byers is rearranging the rest. When the store re-opens on March 5 you’ll find an expanded baby section, lots of new stock including luxury bedding from Canadian brand Brunelli and popular classics Country Affair candles.
“We’re keeping your familiar favourites and bringing in a whole bunch of new stuff so we’re fresh and ready for spring,” Byers says. In January she travelled to Toronto to purchase new products that suit the Creekside style and are sure to inspire the store’s loyal customers.
“We’re working our butts off! It’s going to be an exciting change that’s not too far from the Creekside we know and love.”
It’s time to celebrate!
Visit the store for the Grand Re-opening March 5, 6 and 7 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. to see the new space, explore all the exciting new stock, and get together with familiar faces.
“It’s going to be a party! We’ll have tasty treats for everyone, and lots of giveaways,” Byers says.
