When a DOLLAR Isn’t A Dollar

Consider this scenario. Two different people ask you to give them $10. Person No.1 says, “If you give ME $10, I will give $1 back to your family and friends.” Person No.2 says, “If you give ME $10, I will give $2 back to your family and friends.” Which person would you give your money to? Seems simple, right? Well, that’s exactly the proposition that is facing consumers today when they are choosing where to shop for their home improvement goods. For every $1,000 they spend at a big box store, only $116 of that money is re-circulated back into the local community. When they spend $1,000 at a locally owned home improvement store, $230 of that money stays within the local community.

Source: Dan M. Tratensek (2015,06) When A Dollar Isn’t A Dollar., Hardware Retailing, July 2015, p.10.

Local businesses contribute to the health and prosperity of their communities in the following ways: ➣ Labour and Skills: Local businesses either train their staff members to perform more skilled work to keep labour in house or will outsource to local providers. In contrast, national chains have their headquarters do this labour for them. ➣ Profits: A larger portion of independent stores’ profits stay in a community. In contrast, national chains redistribute profits to their shareholders or invest the money into global operations. ➣ Procurement: A business that is local will pay for local accounting services, local media services, local legal services... etc. National chains provide these professional services in house from their headquarters.

➣ Charitable Giving: Local business owners generally give back to their own communities in a multitude of ways. In contrast, national chains are more likely to donate to national charities or groups located near their headquarters, not near their stores.

Congratulations and Welcome! The awards event is a highlight of the year for the Chamber and our community, an opportunity to recognize success, leadership and the entrepreneurial spirit here in Campbell River. The 2015 award nominees once again represent the best of Campbell River across all sectors and size of business. These individuals, businesses and organizations showcase an optimism and enthusiasm for our community and a respect for what it takes to be a leader in their business and organizations. Previous nominees and award recipients have shared with us what it meant to them to be nominated and now as we celebrate the 2015 nominees, we want to take a moment and share with them, how proud we are of their accomplishments in becoming a qualified nominee. This event is possible because of the generous support we receive from sponsors, volunteers, donors and our members. Thank you to everyone who donated so generously their time, talent and resources. Enjoy your evening! – Colleen Evans, Chamber President & CEO 2015 Chamber Staff (Photo): Michelle Fontaine, Member Services Coordinator; Colleen Evans, President & CE0; Lindsey Innes, Special Events & Member Services Manager.

Business Awards of Distinction We received over 200 nominations sent in by the general public, local businesses and the community, our highest number of nominations received to date. From the nominations received, we asked those nominees to complete a nomination package in order to be considered a ‘qualified’ nominee. Each nomination package was based on the specific award criteria and category that the nominee had been nominated in. The ‘qualified’ nominees who successfully completed their nomination package, then moved forward through the judging process. A diverse group of local business leaders, former winners of awards and community leaders made up the independent judging committee. Each judge reviewed the nominations across all award categories and scored each nomination independently on each of the award criteria. It was a very rigorous review and judging process to arrive at the highest scored nomination in each award category. It’s because of this formal nomination process and the intensive judging and review of nominations received that CAREER PROGRAMS has ensured high standards throughout If you’re stuck in a boring job, underleading to the announcement of the 2015 award recipients. paid, between jobs or just looking

hat does a whisky distillery just this side of Black Creek have to do with broadening the creative arts industry in our region? Well, they happen to have a 2.1-million-gallon cement tank that is 300 feet long by 100 feet wide be used as a film set, can could that and it’s about to get renovated to do just that. The announcement that Shelter Point Distillery’s tank is being repurposed as a film set was part of the Screen BC Day proclamation by the provincial government this week, which celebrated the role the creative arts play in our economy.

Business Awards of Distinction

Category: Board of Governor’s Award

BOARD OF GOVERNOR’S AWARD Honors a current or retired business person who has displayed a significant commitment to the success of both his/her business and the community as a whole; demonstrated business leadership and vision; and served as a positive role model or mentor for other business people in the community. Co-Presented by:

Co-Presented by the Campbell River Chamber of Commerce and Nyrstar Myra Falls

Kermit Dahl Congratulations Kermit, our community looks forward to celebrating and honoring your success at the 2015 Business Awards of Distinction. Kermit’s father was a mechanic and that’s the path he chose too. Having married his high school sweetheart Betty, he followed his dad to Campbell River in 1985. After arriving here, he began his automotive apprenticeship, completing it at Fountain Tire in 1991. He is a Red Seal Interprovincial Automotive licenced technician. In the mid-90’s, Kermit worked for Pacific Regeneration Technologies, better known as the tree nursery. He was responsible

 

for maintaining and developing all of their equipment, both for the silviculture and the nursery operations, across BC. In 1997, he returned to Fountain Tire where he worked until 2010. His reputation as a skilled, personable, trustworthy expert blossomed there. His move to entrepreneurship came in March, 2011 when he bought the Big O Tire store in Campbellton, reopening it as Associated Tire and Auto, a franchise of OK Tire which has over 400 stores in Canada. He jokes that the bank did not want to lend him start-up money, judging that a tire business with sales under half a million dollars was not a good risk. Now, four years later,

annual sales have reached nearly three million dollars. His formula for success is simple. He says, “We do what our competition says they’ll do.” His staff is experienced and believes in what they do and sell. He wants people “to come in as a customer and leave as a friend.” It’s in Kermit’s community service that the unique combination of cars and cooking is expressed. The Associated Tire barbeque, popcorn

maker and slushie machine appear at many summer fundraisers and non-profit events. Sometimes they are on loan, sometimes operated by Kermit and his staff. This is the first major award for Kermit. He has never worked for recognition, instead remaining true to his value, “We do we what do, awards or not, never aiming for acclaim.”

THE SKY IS NO LONGER THE LIMIT

Boyd’s Funeral Services understands the individual needs and challenges that arise when you are faced with the loss of a loved one. Whether it is assisting with final documents or arranging a unique and special tribute for that one of a kind service, Boyd’s is here to help. While Boyd’s does provide traditional burial and cremation services, they also offer a full range of new and extraordinary options to honour your loved one. Today cremated remains may involve a simple scattering or may be used to create fine art pieces and sculptures or one can now have a custom firework designed with the loved one’s cremated remains so you can truly go out with a bang! For something more traditional, Boyd’s Funeral Services can have the cremated remains transformed into fine gemstones, even synthetic diamonds that last a lifetime and beyond or for something extra special for the shining light of your life, their remains may be launched into deep space. There is also the option of having your final resting place on the surface of the moon for approximately the same cost as having a traditional burial, here on earth. From traditional services to unique and awe-inspiring celestial services, Boyd’s Funeral Services are here to help you through every decision and every detail.
