Changing with the times
May 31, 2002
The second generation of the families that own Valley Furniture in Havre not only seem to be dealing with changing conditions, they seem to be taking advantage of them.
"This company dealt with some difficult times in the mid-'80s, and we were very fortunate that the '90s were very good. Yet we have experienced growth in the past two years," Mike Evans said.
Evans, his sister Cathy Brown, and Matt Kretchmer bought the business from Dwayne and Lilly Kretchmer, Matt's parents, in 1991. Dwayne Kretchmer's partner, Dave Evans father of Mike and Cathy died of cancer the year before.
