Two staples in the Smithers’ business community will be joining forces starting next month.
Rayz Board Shop and Valhalla Pure will be merging to create “Local Supply Company” on October 1st.
Rayz owner Jason Krauskopf says the decision was a matter of lifestyle and necessity.
“With online sales, big box stores moving in, discounts stores all over the place, the US- Canadian dollar, the economy, I truly believe that if a person wants to succeed in business and be around for the long haul, you have to reinvent ourselves and stay current,” he says.
Local Supply Company will occupy the current Rays Board Shop location. Valhalla Pure will become a company outlet and discount shop.
