New Vernon Office for Avalon Event Rentals

November 29, 2016


VERNON, BC, Tuesday, November 29, 2016.  Announcing the purchase of Nor-Val Event Rentals in Vernon by Avalon Event Rentals, Kelowna.

Brad Buchanan, Owner and President of Avalon Event Rentals, and his wife Angela are bringing over 21 years of event rental experience, and a massive extended inventory of top quality products and tents, to Vernonites on the hunt for event rentals. “We have provided equipment, tent and accessory rentals for weddings, parties, festivals, corporate and special events, casino parties and more to customers in the desert wine country of Osoyoos to the houseboat-famous Shuswap region, from the Thompson Nicola Valley, to the Kootenays, Northern BC and Lower Mainland,” says Buchanan. “While we currently manage all this from Kelowna, by adding a second location in Vernon with the purchase of Nor-Val Event Rentals, we can offer customers both close to home and much, much further afield, better service, more products, more options.”

Long time Vernon residents Jim Clipperton and Shelli Clipperton, owners of Nor-Val Event Rentals, are thrilled with the sale of the events side of their business to Brad and his team at Avalon. “Avalon is a dedicated event rental company with an unbelievable reputation in the Okanagan Valley, and the ability to offer a greater selection of tents and events products,” says Jim Clipperton. “Shelli, Kim, Amanda and Sarah will be staying on with Avalon in their new location on Okanagan Landing Road in Vernon, so our customers are assured the same great service to which they have become accustomed.”

In short, planners seeking event rentals can expect the same great staff, the same great service, and the same great rental products only with a newly expanded inventory, a new name, new location, new ownership, and bigger crew. Avalon Event Rentals will open their new Vernon office and showroom doors on Thursday December 1st, 2016, just in time for holiday party season. Find them at 4701 25 Avenue, Vernon, BC V1T 6L3, call 250-541-0945, or email [email protected].
