Meet Christy Paquet
Christy enjoys living and working in a small town where there is a strong sense of community. She finds Prince Rupert to be a walkable and friendly community where she feels she knows everyone. Christy has family in Prince Rupert and likes to walk her dogs, read and knit in her spare time. Prince Rupert has a wonderful community supported and volunteer driven garden called Sunken Gardens that Christy recommends visiting.
Christy recently opened e’Klektik Trading Company. “I’m proud of the unique concept, the economy of scale,” she said, “and providing a venue for micro entrepreneurs to share a commercial retail space.” Christy felt more unique shops were needed in Prince Rupert and she stepped up and opened her own business. She likes being an entrepreneur for the freedom it allows in setting her own schedule and hours. Operating her store allows Christy to meet friendly customers and feel a sense of community amongst business owners.
Christy believes Prince Rupert, and the local business community, will grow but at a steady and slow pace. She has noticed Prince Rupert feels a bit busier and has happily noticed more houses are being improved through renovations. She points out there are some higher paying jobs in town and there are more families moving to Prince Rupert.
