BASHAW FARM & BUILDING SUPPLIES LTD

BASHAW FARM & BUILDING SUPPLIES LTD

Bashaw Farm & Building Supplies Ltd was purchased by Shaun and Cindy Orom in 2017 with the desire to raise their family in a small community, as well as ensure the continuance of a long-time business in Bashaw.

The Orom’s represented many current businesses operating during the COVID pandemic that wanted reassurance of whether to adapt their business and/or how to pivot their products and services. CFEP business coaching allowed the Orom’s to express their fears, reassured them they were not alone, and ensured they were mentally prepared to adapt their businesses to changing conditions. As a result, they had the confidence to move forward with the development and expansion of a new greenhouse, adopted curbside pickup, as well as implement a new online ordering system. Their efforts ensured operations were maintained and successful throughout COVID, as well as moving forward.

Bashaw Farm & Building Supplies Ltd also participated in Community Future East Parkland’s annual Marketing Challenge (#MarketingChallenge) that moved to an on-line Facebook version in 2020, winning the prize for the Most Dynamic. https://www.bfbsltd.com/
