By Meredity Kluever

People in our community come from all over the world and bring with them unique knowledge and specialties. Here’s a compilation of some of the tried-and-true hometown entrepreneurs, ranging from your neighborhood banker to florist to veterinarian.

Pet Store
Look to the Barking Cat for attentive, helpful staff and the best quality pet foods, equipment and toys. This female-owned pet store provides high-quality gear, equipment and food to all Park City pet lovers. It even has its own “barkery” with treats from small-business bakers that look good enough for people to eat.

“It’s easy for anybody to go to Amazon or a place like that and get something to your door the next day,” Owner, Merridee Farr postured. “We want to add that special human touch to make it a fun place for people to bring their dogs and their cats.”

Insurance Agency
Whether you’re new to town, own a vacation home, or just looking for a local insurance team, C&W Premier Insurance will work with you on all your coverage needs. Owner and Agent Clair Christoffersen explains, “We’re a very local hands-on company.” C&W offers a litany of insurance coverage from business and home, to auto, life, and health insurance.

Brant Christoffersen, Clair’s son, is poised to take over the business to keep it in the family. “Park City is very community oriented, and everyone likes that they can talk to either myself or my father personally,’’ states Brant.

Flower Shop
Silver Cricket Floral owned by Marilyn Brumfield has been voted Park City’s Best Flower Shop multiple times over. The floral studio is based in the Redstone Center and specializes in custom arrangements, weddings, holidays, and events.
In addition to floral arrangements, the Silver Cricket crafts gourmet gift baskets for your loved ones. Or go one step further and enjoy one of their permanent floral displays that can be kept in your home forever.

Local Bank
With multiple neighborhood locations throughout Utah
and Colorado, Grand Valley Bank knows its customers personally. In 2012, Grand Valley Bank opened its doors to its Park City location at 1225 Deer Valley Drive. The knowledgeable staff and friendly atmosphere provide exceptional customer service. As part of its local connection, Grand Valley Bank is also the proud host to the Deer Valley Community Concert Series.

Shipping and Packaging
The UPS Store is an all-in-one postal, business and communications service center. From shipping and packaging to faxing and full-service copiers and full-color printing, the UPS Store is there to help. It even offers private mailboxes, notary services, and passport pictures.

Dr. Carl Prior and his loving team at Park City Animal Clinic stay on top of the latest advances in veterinary technology and treat every patient like it’s their own pet.
