2) What is it like working with local businesses in Calgary since the pandemic?
We've had the great pleasure of working and partnering with a lot of incredible people and businesses. Currently we are finding that many people are trying to maximize or update their current space depending on their situation and where they work, live or play. Many homeowners are making investments in their home such as developing their basements or maximizing their space in their garages and its been super exciting to see these transformations. Our commercial customers took advantage of the lock down by completing improvements to their business space so that they could open their doors with a fresh look and serve their clients even better, and/or make improvements to their space for their employees. I feel we will continue to see people make investments in improving or updating their space in where they work and live to make it as functional and more up to date and more harmonious as possible.
