Local business matters to VantageOne, and it always has. We have been committed to helping grow our members, local businesses and communities since 1944. As part of our commitment to supporting local businesses, our commercial services team is highlighting some of our outstanding local business members. The featured business we are shining the spotlight on is Enderby Jewellers.

Tell us a bit about your business, and history.
Enderby Jewellers has become known as one of the North Okanagan’s favourite destination stops, specializing in personalized service for anyone looking for specific items. This year marks 72 years since they opened their doors for business. Judy became the third owner in 1991.        Judy says – “We are like three stores under one roof. We feature a full Jewellery Store with Canadian Diamonds being our specialty, a large giftware and collectible selection and a full engraving department – producing tophies, awards, signage, name badges, personalized gifts and more! This is why some customers began calling us the “Secret Store”. I love Enderby and feel so blessed to have been able to stay in the place where I grew up and went to school and now to have a successful business, it is great. The people are wonderful. It is a great community.

If you could give one piece of advice to new business owners or those thinking of starting a business what would it be?
My advice to anyone thinking of starting a new business here would be:  You need to be very knowledgeable of the product or service that you are wanting to provide.   Be prepared to treat your customers with respect and offer great customer service.  Get to know the community you are wanting to do business in. Get involved in the community activities.

How has VantageOne helped you start, succeed in or grow your business?
VantageOne has enabled me to renovate while carrying on my business and been there for me when I needed them. They know my business and offer great customer service, knowledge and respect the services I need, as a small business.
