Local retail staff will be missed

Thank you for your consistent, professional manner from many customers!

Two of my favourite retail people are leaving Hope.

Irene at Caswell Interiors – our wonderful Hope furniture store has given me some great deals and is the consummate retailer, professional yet kind and personable. Many who pop in for a look and a chat will miss her dearly. Irene was one of the very first people I met after retiring to Hope a few years ago. She graciously offers information and time never seems to be a problem.

“Customers come first”, is her motto. Irene creates a beautiful environment in Caswell’s. Top marks for decorating! She will be moving to another province to be with family and I wish her all the best in her new position.

The other person I will miss is the English butcher at Buy & Save (don’t know his name), whose cheery helpful manner is much appreciated. He too leaves for another province to be with family and will be missed. Thank you Irene and the butcher at Buy & Save for your consistent, professional manner from many customers!
