Christie’s Office Plus owner Don Green and purchasing manager Donna Christie are framed by some of the prizes up for grabs during the treasure chest key contest that will be a part of the annual customer appreciation day and trade show on Thursday.
Could you use a new iPad or Keurig coffee maker at your office? Well, you’ll have a chance to win one at Christie’s Office Plus 15th annual customer appreciation day and trade show on Thursday, Sept. 27. The coffee maker and iPad are among many great prizes which will be in Christie’s "treasure chest."
Every customer will get a key and a chance to unlock the treasure chest during the customer appreciation day from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday at Christie’s Office Plus, located at 705 Pacific Ave.
Owner/general manager Don Green said there will also be the latest and greatest in office equipment and supplies at the trade show.
"There will be about 16 to 17 vendors represented at the trade show. We like to think of ourselves as solution providers, so there are a lot of products out there that can help with a problem a customer might be having in the office. Someone needs to staple 80 pages together, we can help with that or needs a pen that writes upside down. We will have new and solution providing products like that (at the trade show)," Green said.
A great number of one-day sales will also be running on customer appreciation day, and lunch will be provided for customers on hand at the event.

BJ Nelson Developments
Eighteenth Street will see the addition of another new commercial business this spring. BJ Nelson Developments recently acquired the pocket of land located at 213 18th St. and plan to turn it into a 4,500-square-foot mini-mall or single commercial space. There is currently a house located on the property, situated between a strip mall and another business, but Brian Nelson, owner of BJ Nelson Developments, says the house will be vacated and taken down when construction starts on the new commercial space in the spring.
Nelson said he is working on securing a single commercial tenant for the new space, but will take up to three commercial tenants for a short strip mall, similar to the building he owns further down 18th Street, which houses Tutti Frutti and Clancy’s Meats.
The building is expected to be ready for lease in September 2013.

Women at Pause
A new 12-week life coaching program with Women At Pause is starting again this Tuesday. Run by life coach Brenda Helwko, the program is aimed at women who believe they are at a crossroads in life. Helwko said in an email that potential clients perhaps have just finished raising children, had a fulfilling career and now are stuck and wondering, "What’s next?"
She said there are a few spots still available and clients will go through discussions and life coaching, including such topics as discovering your passion and life purpose, identifying your needs, tapping into your inner wisdom, reclaiming your personal power and practising self care, and balance between work and home.
"What I have done is created an environment where women can connect with other like-minded women and engage in rich discussions that get them in touch with who they are and what they want to create for themselves for the second half of their life," said Helwko.
For more information, visit womenatpause.com.
To register, contact Brenda Helwko at 204-727-2764 or email her at Brenda@womenatpause.com.
