Morrissey Creek Building Supplies in Grand Forks is on the move. Owner Mike Combs bought the business three years ago because “it was a healthy, good business and it got me out of the Lower Mainland to a better way of life,” said Combs.

He purchased a parcel of land behind Extra Foods and Kal Tire and plans on building a new structure to move the business there next year. It’ll be a lot larger and provide more in terms of kitchen, lighting, plumbing, electrical and equipment they don’t carry at the moment. “It’s a contracting store,” he said, “but we want to make it an everybody store, too.”
