Meet Murray & Kathy Swanson
No matter where you go in Chetwynd, says Murray Swanson, “you can always get a friendly hello.” That’s just the way Chetwynd residents are: friendly and welcoming. With two highways running through it, it’s a convenient stop for travelers and a great place to stay and enjoy all that Chetwynd has to offer. Murray and his wife, Kathy (pictured with the assistant store manager, Bonnie) believe Chetwynd has a little bit of everything and a lot of outdoors for both residents and visitors to take advantage of. In fact, outdoor recreation is one of Chetwynd’s best assets. Kathy particularly likes to walk and hike, and appreciates the many trails in the area. You don’t even have to leave town for a mountain hike, with Baldy Mountain right in town and easily accessible. Murray enjoys getting his riverboat out on any of the surrounding rivers for a good adrenalin rush.
Murray and Kathy have lived in Chetwynd for more than 25 years. They chose it for the affordable lifestyle and small town atmosphere. Its thriving business community and strong working population made it an excellent place to start the beer store in 2007. They have seen many economic ups and downs throughout their years here, but have always remained confident in Chetwynd’s ability to flourish. Residents are supportive of their local businesses, which has a ripple effect through the entire community-at-large.
Murray notes that you must always have your finger on the pulse of your business and keep it operating smoothly. However, with time the business became more established, which has left the Swanson’s with a little more free time than they once had, allowing more time for travel, family and friends.
Friendly. Trendy. Original.
