The Painted Crate is a new business opening next week that will tap into the creative, artistic side of Cranbrook.

While owners Barb Stevenson and Jan Stone will be exclusively using Benjamin Moore Paint and Branding, they will be offering do-it-yourself classes featuring fun projects and painting essentials.

In addition to these creative aspects, Barb and Jan will be displaying pieces of art of local artists, in order to show customers how they can put together a room with flow and flair.

“This business idea came to us from our love of paint, and a desire to offer something new to our community,” Barb and Jan say. “We look forward to meeting new and past customers of Benjamin Moore.” The public is invited to drop in for a coffee and browse around our new store in the corner of the old Blockbuster location (now beside Millennium Video), or call 250-426-3313 between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.

The Painted Crate will be opening Thursday, November 1.
