New Revelstoke tourism business Everything Revelstoke will soon open its doors at the Molson’s Bank building at Mackenzie and First Avenue.
Owners Brydon Roe and Jason Leonard have teamed with manager Richard Eden to create a one-stop shop for booking vacations and activities in the Revelstoke area.
In addition to the prime downtown location, everythingrevelstoke.com will serve as an online portal to pre-plan holidays to Revelstoke, including connections to accommodation, dining, spas, equipment rentals, adventure tourism and transportation.
Roe currently operates transportation company Revelstoke Connection in conjunction with the Powder Springs Inn. He explained the business is an extension into the service, and builds on their experiences and help interconnect existing businesses and services.
“A small kayak business or a small bike business, they don’t have a storefront or an active website where you can book online and pay with your credit card,” explained Roe.
They can partner with Everything Revelstoke to promote their business or create tour packages. Everything Revelstoke will take a cut. “There are no fees to the customer,” Roe said.
“We have lofty goals. We’d like to offer shuttles to Mount Revelstoke. We’d like to offer shuttles to Halcyon Hot Springs,” Roe explained. “People that are walking on a sunny summer afternoon don’t necessarily know that they can mountain bike over at Macpherson.”
“Any business that is good for the town is good for everybody,” Eden said, adding a goal of building summer and winter tourism.
The showroom at 122 Mackenzie Avenue is still under construction, but should be open in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, follow Everything Revelstoke on Twitter or Facebook before Mar. 18 for a chance at a heli-skiing draw.
