Ashcroft Home Hardware is offering to help businesses in Cache Creek and Ashcroft beautify the exterior of their building(s) with the “Let’s Paint the Town” promotion. Applications are now being taken for the program, which allows eligible businesses to purchase Beauti-Tone paint at a 40 per cent discount.
“You never get that much off Beauti-Tone paint,” says Willow Anderson, owner of Ashcroft Home Hardware. “It’s never in our flyer.”
Anderson notes that 20 per cent of the discount comes from Ashcroft Home Hardware and 20 per cent comes from Beauti-Tone. The promotion has a cap of 200 gallons in total, and Anderson says that if there is enough interest and the cap is reached, they can offer the promotion again in the future.
Although the program runs from April to June 2019, interested businesses can apply now. All they have to do is provide the square footage of the building(s) they want painted, which will allow staff at Home Hardware to calculate the number of gallons of paint needed.
While Home Hardware cannot do the painting, they have a list of local painting contractors that businesses can hire to do the work if they can’t do it themselves. Anderson says that participating businesses are encouraged to put a sign in their window, or a note on their website or Facebook page, acknowledging Home Hardware and Beauti-Tone, but that it isn’t mandatory.
“It makes a huge difference to a building, painting it,” says Anderson. “This is a great way to revitalize your building at a lower cost.”
Businesses interested in registering for the Let’s Paint the Town promotion, or who would like more information, can drop by Ashcroft Home Hardware, or call the store at (250) 453-2281.
