Employees and regulars at the Subway in Fernie have welcomed the store’s new owners to town. Coming from Calgary, Kelsey Goldade and Cortney Groeneveld took over the store on February 20.
The couple may be new to town, but this is not their first time in Fernie. “I went to the University of Lethbridge where I met a lot of friends who actually were raised in Fernie. I’ve always had a connection from that,” said Goldade. “Just knowing some people here we have spent a lot of vacation time here.”
The pair has been hard at work since last week getting to know their new employees and business, but are hoping they will soon get a chance to explore their new town.
“There’s been a lot of hours to put in, especially at the start of taking over the business,” said Goldade. “We actually haven’t had a chance to really see Fernie, but we’re excited about it. Hopefully we’ll get up to the ski hill before the end of the season.”
He went on to say, “This is our new home, we’re here to stay.”
