Small Business BC puts Prince Rupert's Argosy into the spotlight

One of Prince Rupert's recent small business success stories is getting some wide exposure these days, with Small Business BC providing an in depth feature on Third Avenue's Argosy.

The shop that is brimming in antiques and vintage items has already built up a strong Northwest clientele with regular browsers and customers dropping in to see what the latest finds have brought to the North Coast.

"It’s so easy to open up a laptop and shop at Amazon, but Amazon isn’t the business that’s doing good in your community. That money isn’t staying within your community. I think it’s so important to remember that when making decisions on how to spend your money." --Argosy Co-owner Frances Riley 

The on line feature provides a bit of background towards the genesis of the local business, as well as to how they have changed their operational plan in times of COVID.

The presentation also includes a video slideshow to highlight the features of the local business located at the corner of 9th Street and Third Avenue West as well as to profile its owners Frances Riley and Richard Haley.

The review from Small Business BC also means that the Prince Rupert business gets a listing on the BC Small Business Marketplace, which could mean a bit of competition from further afield now for shoppers in the Northwest looking to go on the treasure hunt with Richard and Frances.

Towards the theme of always finding new, the latest Facebook post from the store notes that new arrivals are on their way, with the trailer load of new finds soon to be on display.

For those looking to browse on line, before browsing in store, the Argosy website can be reviewed here.
