Why did you choose Downtown Red Deer as the location for your business?

We wanted to support downtown! This is kind of a personal endeavor for me. So, I’ve always loved downtown since I moved to Red Deer five years ago. So, I just wanted to support it and yeah, that’s why we came down here.

 What do you think makes Downtown vibrant?  

Having the unique little shops around here is definitely what I love about downtown and that’s what draws me here and that’s why I made our business so unique is so we just fit in so perfectly down here.

I love Downtown Red Deer because… I love the live music that goes on, I love the Christmas lights, the parade, not so much this year, but definitely, in the future, I’m sure they’ll be back on again. And yeah, that’s why I love downtown. It’s a small town with a big city feel.

Next time you’re downtown, be sure to check out Artisan Food Market on Ross where they are always bringing in fresh local products to discover!

Downtown Business Spotlight: 4 Pillars

Published on

This week’s Business Spotlight shines on 4 Pillars! Located at 4779 49 St, 4 Pillars is the place to go to find debt relief. We sat down with the owner and Debt Relief Specialist, Eric Everett, for more information about the business!

What is your business? 

Well, we help people through their debt problems, so we have debt relief solutions and financial advice on how to solve problems.

 

When did you open? 

Well, 4 Pillars, across Canada, started in 2002, so 18 years and Red Deer started 7 years ago. I purchased July 1st of 2019.

What would you say makes your business unique? 

I have to say great staff, or they’ll beat me up! What I love is that we don’t just help with debt. We have all kinds of different solutions to help people through whatever needs they have, so when they walk out they say, ‘Wow! That was easy!’

What are some products/services that you offer?  

Our main job is to get people to do a Consumer Proposal. I call it bankruptcy-light. There are hardly any consequences, versus bankruptcy. It’s a very easy solution through their debt problems. And it’s not just that people have little debt problems; our average debt level is 60,000$, it’s hard to get out of that by themselves. The government came up with the Consumer Proposal about 20 years ago so that people can come out through their debt problems without committing suicide or robbing banks so that they can have some hope for their future. I’m actually a hope builder!

Why did you choose Downtown Red Deer as the location for your business? 

Well, great visibility is the main reason. We have about 10,000 cars drive by our location every day, so that’s huge for us. And then Lucky Restaurant is right next door!

What do you think makes Downtown vibrant? 

Lots of access, ease of getting around, everything is located in a small area, and it’s not hard to get in and out of the Downtown area like a lot of centers.

I love Downtown Red Deer because… It’s a good business location for me.

 

If you or someone you know is looking for assistance getting out of debt, 4 Pillars is the place to go.
