“A friend of mine had a pet store and he was closing up, so he had several customers built up for the certain brand of food, and there was no where else in Clarenville to buy it,” Curtis explained. “So he came to me and I bought everything off of him. What sold well I kept in stock, and what didn’t, I sold off and stopped.”
Then, in 2012, Curtis moved into a larger office space on Marine Road. Suddenly, he had 1,500 square feet of space as opposed to 900. And with more floor space came the question: what to sell next?
“Well, I had to sell something else. We decided to get into the books because there was no one in Clarenville selling them at the time,” Curtis explained.
