IDEAS FOR GETTING YOUR ‘BACK TO LIVING’ BUCKET LIST DONE
Summer has been officially here for a month! Have you embraced it yet? Even if you’re keeping safe at home, you can make the most of the warmer weather and slower pace of life, freshen up those walls you’ve been looking at for too long. If you are venturing out a bit, embrace some fresh air, hit some trails and have some fun.
Cloverdale Paint might be a large international company, but its humble roots started right here in B.C. in 1933. Some of you will remember the barn-shaped structure on the corner of 64th and King George Boulevard (then Highway) that housed the store and years later became the first farmer’s market in Newton. In the 1950s, they moved just a few blocks away, and are one of Newton’s most established businesses, employing hundreds at their current factory and storefront at 6950 King George Boulevard.
Company co-founder Rudy Henke built a reputation offering low prices using a “Factory direct to you” philosophy. From humble beginnings on a farm near Cloverdale, B.C., they’ve grown to be Canada’s largest privately-owned, and one of North America’s largest regional manufacturers and sellers of paint products and coatings.
During the lockdowns and opening-up periods, we’ve spent a lot of time at home. We’ve already done the baking thing, planted the garden, and organized our closets.
Whether you are a painting professional or a new do-it-yourselfer, Cloverdale Paint has some excellent stay-at-home and do-it-yourself solutions for you. As we hunker down in these unprecedented times, it’s the opportunity to examine long-term improvements we can make at home.
With the warmer weather right now, it’s an excellent idea to re-stain your siding, fence, latticework, or decks. Their Weather-One® 100% Acrylic Stain is an ideal choice for fences and latticework, as it allows the natural colour and texture of the wood to show through. Or, for decks, SharkSkin Deck Stain fits the need, because it adheres firmly, is fast drying, and is tough, you’ll be back using the deck in no time, and can enjoy the fresh look!
If you’d rather tackle the inside, Cloverdale Paint has some excellent Do-It-Yourself Paint kits for those looking for an ‘all-inclusive’ bundle. You have to determine the rooms you want to tackle, and everything you need is included, from their Super2 Designer paint, and all the “fixings” — brushes rollers, tape, sanding sponge, sparkling and even a putty knife!
You simply need to calculate the total coverage area of the walls (total square feet). Measure the length and width of the space and the wall height then write it down. That will help determine what size of Room Kit you
need. Branch Manager Nicola, and her staff at the Cloverdale Paint store will help you from there. If you’re closer to Central City, visit Branch Manager Tamara and team at the Surrey Central location at 10277 King George Blvd.
It’s time to flatten the curve by heading for the hills.
Rocky Cycle, at 7143 King George Boulevard, has been a mainstay in the Newton Area since 1981. And these days, Manager Sean is seeing a lot of people visiting the store — to get their bikes ready for some trail-blazing action, or leisurely park rolling — but for many of us, it might be the first time in a long time that we’ve decided to rediscover the joy of biking.
We know it’s important to stay home as much as possible, but also to get outside for fresh air and exercise. It is a great mental break.
Group riding isn’t recommended these days, and so if you’ve decided to solo ride, make sure that your bike is in great shape. If your bike hasn’t been maintained for a while, and you need a good tune-up before you hit the road, give Rocky Cycle a call with the brand and model of your bike. They are accepting bike repairs by appointment only at this time.
Rocky Cycle prides itself on the reputation as the best bike shop in Surrey. It stocks a complete range of bikes in a full array of sizes and types.
Whether you are looking for an urban cruiser or a passionate adventure on mountain bike, they have the expertise and knowledge to get your butt on the right seat for you. All of the bikes that they sell come with 12 months unlimited tune-ups, manufacturer warranties and experienced fitting advice.
But once you’ve made the decision to ride, you might need some help putting it on the car. Don’t risk damaging it or your vehicle. Rocky Cycle supplies reliable and safe transportation options for your vehicle to get your bike to that hidden spot to ride.
Like EV’s, E-Bikes are becoming more popular every day, and the store has several choices available. Rocky Cycle says, “If you are shopping for a new bike or would like to convert an existing bike to an electric assist system we are here to help, with over 10 years experience converting everything from commuters to recumbents we can consult with you and find the right system for your requirements.”
They want you to know that they’ve got some new hours. From Monday to Friday, from 11am-5pm, and Sat-Sun from 11am-4pm. They are closed on Tuesdays and holidays.
