Spotlight on small business: The Mantel

“Each time you visit The Mantel you’ll find something new.”

Approaching their one-year anniversary on March 1, The Mantel owners Allison Levens and Susan Colgate couldn’t be more thrilled with the way their new home decor business has been received by the community.

Offering a wide variety of kitchen, bedding, bath, furniture and home decor products, Levens and Colgate said they wanted to bring something different to the community, but also fill a void to provide unique products to residents that wasn’t available.

“Each time you visit The Mantel you’ll find something new that will surely pique your interest,” Levens says.

“We’ve made a real effort to find products made in B.C. and Canada, and we try our best to bring in products that will appeal to our customers and residents in the Cariboo,” Colgate adds.

“We put a lot of thought into how we decorate our store, and a lot of customers comment on how warm and homey the store is with the wood and the fireplace — hence, The Mantel,” Levens adds.
