MBR Creations Inc. Providing Unique Dealership Opportunities
Sometimes, a pleasurable hobby or interest can become a full time occupation, especially when you excel at what you do. At first, your talent might only attract the interest of family or close friends, but word of mouth is one of the best advertising tools, and before you know it you’re at it full time. And that is how Margery Smith and Rita Wagner moved from hobby to business! Thirty-two years ago, Marge and Rita worked in the insurance industry in Waterloo when they realized and recognized they had other talents! They “stripped” as a hobby in their spare time! They were very good at “stripping!” Furniture stripping that is!! They shared a passion for restoring wooden furniture, including metal pieces which led them down a very successful path of entrepreneurship when they created “The Strippers! (M&R)”®. Since the company’s creation in 1982, they have experienced considerable growth and success, providing a unique and skilled service, combined with incredible knowledge. The company’s longevity is evidence that perseverance, determination and commitment pays off!
The Strippers! Once establishing their current head office in Kitchener, ON and confident in their ability to serve the restoration market, Marge and Rita opened a second location in Guelph in 1988 followed one year later, in 1989 with a third location in Cambridge. Both Guelph and Cambridge locations continue to operate today as licensed dealers who have successfully completed hands on training by Marge and Rita, reflecting the same perfection and skill clients have come to know and expect from “The Strippers! (M&R)”®
Bits & Pieces Furniture & Decor With a great appreciation and respect for the fine artistic furniture and pieces of days gone by, it seemed a natural progression for Marge and Rita to take another step into a complimentary endeavour to their already existing business. From workshop to furniture shop, in 2001, they created Kitchener-Waterloo’s only Furniture Consignment store, “Bits & Pieces Furniture & Décor!”
