Alberni businesses nominated for Island excellence

Eight Alberni Valley businesses have been nominated for Vancouver Island Business Excellence Awards this year.

Eight Alberni Valley businesses have been nominated for Vancouver Island Business Excellence Awards this year—the third largest number behind Victoria and Nanaimo.

Alberni Community & Women’s Services Society, Boomerangs Café, Coulson Group, EM Salon, The Fenton Group, Trends Design Team, Vancouver Island Limousine and West Coast Edge ATV, all from Port Alberni, were nominated in various categories.

“This is one of the deepest and most diverse set of finalists we’ve seen yet,” notes Mark MacDonald of Business Examiner, which coordinates the event.

“I believe this was the largest number of nominations we’ve ever received, and the scope and variety of what these businesses do is mind-boggling. It’s simply amazing what businesses are doing on Vancouver Island.”

Award categories range from agriculture to automotive, construction to entrepreneurship, real estate to retail, technology to trade.

“We’re very excited to announce that we’ve been invited to represent the Alberni Valley at the Vancouver Island Business Excellence Awards as finalists for real estate,” Chris and Esther Fenton of The Fenton Team wrote on their Facebook site.

“We feel very fortunate to have been nominated,” Trends Design Team wrote on their site.

This year’s gala will take place Jan. 26 at the Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe Resort.
