CiB Business of the Month – 2018
September - Town Office
We would like to choose the Town Hall as the business of the month. Chosen for the following reasons:
The green grass along with the flowers is very pretty.
You can also see the cenotaph better being as some trees were cut down.
August - Pharmasave
“We chose to focus our choice on a business in the downtown area that presented an inviting and welcoming atmosphere. After some discussion we chose Pharmasave to receive the business of the month award. The way that the management and staff have presented the front of the store to the public provides a garden like area for patrons and tourists alike to sit down and enjoy what our town has to offer while resting their feet. This promotes what we believe is the focus of the CIB mandate, positive and aesthetically appealing atmospheres within our community.”
July – Kaufman's Saddle Shop
The Maple Creek Post Office staff have decided to nominate Bob's Custom Saddle Shop at 102 Herbert Street for the next Communities in Bloom Award. This business has done a lot of work to the yard by landscaping it so that it has wonderful curb appeal. The building itself has black metal art signs decorating the outside demonstrating various images which portray his business theme.There has also been a rustic style fence built which enhances the entire appearance of the corner lot. Everything in this yard is meticulous and very well maintained. A job well done indicating a lot of pride in his establishment!
June – Grotto Gardens Country Market
Their place always looks warm and inviting. The grounds are always neat and tidy, nothing out of place. They are always adding to the beautification of the property.
