I was looking for a simple (yet almost impossible to find), piece of metal with a 36 degree bend. It had to be strong enough to support the weight of a dome pentagon yet light enough to not hamper interior decor pieces. I kept getting from people “ask Charlton & Hill to make it”. So I finally went over with my simple plan and to my surprise got a positive response. They were willing to support my entry to the MicroHome Competition!
Well it appears as though everyone in Lethbridge has dealt with Charlton & Hill at one time or another. To my surprise their reputation in this city was, and remains, stellar after over 75 years. Maintaining a very high level of customer satisfaction over so many years is not just an average achievement! And it didn’t escape me that they’ve participated in numerous local causes from Big Brothers Big Sisters to the college, the university, food banks and more. A vision that includes a better community. My kind of people!
Special thanks to Val for her encouraging interest and Trevor for his knowledge and skill.
