There are new business owners in town. Jamie and Ryan Beilstein purchased Lac La Biche Stationers this past April. And while they didn’t have plans to own a business when they began their journey to Lac La Biche over six years ago, sometimes a great opportunity determines how things turn out.
Ryan, originally from Texas, was awaiting his Canadian citizenship before looking for employment. When he could apply for work, he accepted a job at Lac La Biche Stationers as a computer technician. Jamie, who comes from Innisfail, found work as an educational assistant. They were pretty sure that they would only be in the area for two years, but like many first-timers in the region, they soon fell in love with it.
When the former owner of LLB Stationers suggested that the couple might consider buying the business, it didn’t take long for them to make a leap of faith in both the business and the community. “Lac La Biche is much more than we expected,” says Jamie. It is a fantastic community where we can establish our roots and contribute in a deep and meaningful way”.
Beating City Prices
Although they are not making too many drastic changes to Lac La Biche Stationers just yet, the couple would like everyone to know that they are doing whatever is possible to lower costs and beat “city prices” whenever they can. Their goal is to continue to offer services and supplies to businesses and individuals in the area at the best possible price. In addition to stationery and audio-visual supplies, services include computer repair (in-shop and on-site), phone repair, and photography (Jamie’s has a successful side-gig called One Thousand Promises Photography).
More To See
Jamie and Ryan also want to encourage more walk-in traffic and casual shoppers. New products and on-sale items are always available.
If you are wondering whether they might have a product or offer a service, don’t hesitate to check them out. You can expect to be surprised by how much they have to offer and how eager they are to help.
