Elk Valley Furniture Studio celebrates grand opening

Elk Valley Furniture Studio is inviting the community to shop selection, shop price, and shop local.

On December 5, new owners Jody Krienke and Joseph Gatt invited everyone in the Elk Valley to join them in celebrating their grand opening.

“Our party was from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. and we had door prizes and snacks and it was a very social kind of setting just to celebrate our opening on November 1,” said Krienke of the event.

According to Krienke, she and Gatt rebranded under a new corporation and Elk Valley Furniture Studio was officially born on November 1. They carry all types of home furnishing needs including “dining rooms, bedroom sets, coffee tables, rugs, living rooms, mattresses, sofas, bedding and accessories – pretty much everything,” said Krienke.

Many of the items that the store carries are Canadian made, which Krienke said people from Fernie have really appreciated.

“I think Fernie really needed this and the feedback has been great. People are just coming in because they want to see the store and want to see what we have and it’s been amazing – the response that we’ve gotten from Fernie, from Sparwood and from the Elk Valley.”

The Fernie store, which is located on Second Avenue and shares a building with Interior Envy and IGS isn’t the only place that you can shop. Krienke noted that they also have a store in the Sparwood mall.

Krienke said that they’ve had a good relationship with other business and that they “are working with our partners across the hallway, Interior Envy and they are helping us to stage the store and do little things and we’re working really closely with them to help us make the store look good with all the items she has next store so it’s a great partnership with her.”

If you can’t find what you need in store, Krienke said they can do custom orders and also added that the store delivers so people don’t have to stress about how they’ll get their new purchases home.
