It is hard to imagine the diversity of businesses in the Creston
Valley, especially since many are not visible to the passer by.
This is where our business directories can help and the Creston
and District Chamber of Commerce. Many folks have followed their
passion and are providing services and products that are marketed
locally and outside of the valley. Our agriculture and forestry
industry have been producing quality specialty products internationally
for decades and are the backbone of our economy. We have a large
service sector that accommodates the majority of needs of our
community. Those of you who appreciate local culture will be delighted
to also find it in our business community. Perhaps it is being
rural that brings out the character in us that is stifled in a
larger center! Even though we have a nostalgic feel to our business
community we are current in our business practices and our technology
helps us maintain professional standards. Enjoy!
Business and Services:
The Creston and Kootenay Lake Valley is a fully self-contained
business and services community that meets the majority of the
residdential and business needs with room for more. The resource
sector of our community has given birth to many value-added businesses.
The advent of the Internet has inspired many e-commerce ventures
that vary from the sale of locally-made products and media productions
to travel tours for international markets. Our proximety to the
US and the favorable exchange rate gives a strong competitive
advantage to our exporters. It's the valley's diversity that contributes
to our stable economy. Whether you're a customer or a company,
Creston is striving to make doing business here a positive experience.
