Celebrating Small Business Week

Country Lane Creations has been in Tumbler Ridge for over five years. Known for its uniqueness and as the Sears outlet, it has made an impression on the community. In addition the store is also an outlet for DHL and Greyhound.

Jenny Jung purchased the store in April of 2007, and is delighted with her decision. Originally she had wanted to buy the store years ago, but a friend got there first. So when her friend decided to sell, Jenny didn?t waste a second.

She didn?t want to change the stores ambience, but did add some new merchandise. It is a place to buy women?s clothing, baby bits and pieces, jewelry and gift wear. Her favorite moments so far have been working with the people on a daily basis, and being her own boss. Jenny supports her community in many ways, and wants to continue to help locally.

The best advice for any new entrepreneur she says is to get all your government work done right away, and to find a good accountant. This will save you a lot of time in the long run.
