Armour Mountain Bookkeeping proprietor Lana Laskovic has just opened a new office in the Barriere Town Mall by AG Foods.

“I thought it was time to have a front office,” said Laskovic, “I have a number of clients, and have also built up a tax clientele this year so thought the office will make me more available.”

Laskovic tells she has lived in the community since 2010 when she moved to Barriere from Squamish.

“I had my own bookkeeping business there, and I have 25 years experience in doing tax returns for personal business, rental, capital gains, losses, or commission sales,” said the entrepreneur, “I still have clients I work for in Squamish, and now have others from Kamloops and locally.”

Laskovic says she had no idea that the Barriere area had so many artists.  “There is so much talent here; and me, as a newcomer, didn’t realize that until just recently.  I want to showcase the local artisans in town here at my office, and I’m very happy to say I am a member of the North Thompson Arts Council.”

She notes that although she herself does not create art, she does have a love for seeing good work promoted.

“From now until Dec.  16, Wayne Broomfield has his painting here on display and for sale,” said Laskovic, “Then I will leave it up to the Art Council to decide who comes in next on display.”

Laskovic also has a number of pencil sketches and note cards on display created by her sister, Carol Peerless, as well as stained glass creations made by her mother, Alice Belanger.

Along with the art work, Laskovic says she plans on bringing in some office supplies such as toner and ink cartridges. “I can take orders for a number of items, especially toner, and ink cartridges and can have them here in a one or two day turnaround.”

She can also produce basic business cards, postcards, etc.

Laskovic invites everyone to stop in at her office this Monday, Nov. 21, 7 to 9 p.m., for her office grand opening, and also the official opening of the Broomfield’s art show.
