If August 4th wasn’t already circled on the home and office calendars of the Southeast, it should be highlighted in bright colour, underlined, and then circled again, just because.
That’s the date, it almost goes without saying, of the 55th Annual Steinbach Chamber of Commerce Pioneer Days Parade, after which the Deckcetera floats will be pulled to the business’s new location on the corner of Highway 12 and Loewen Boulevard. Then, between 11:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., guests can browse the backyard spas, furniture, and patio samples while enjoying a charity BBQ in support of Youth For Christ.
“YFC has been near and dear to us. I’ve been part of the organization from the sidelines for many, many years,” says Mike Giesbrecht, Deckcetera owner. “We’ll have hot dogs, chips, and bottled water for $3.00, and all proceeds will go to YFC. It’s a great organization.”
Combining business with community is part of the ethos at Deckcetera, and Giesbrecht doesn’t miss an opportunity to express his pride at being able to serve Steinbach and the Southeast. It’s a commitment that extends to the quality products his business offers and the affordable prices attached to them.
“We’ve traveled all over the world for these products, and we want them to be cost-effective options for our neighbors and friends,” Giesbrecht explains. “We want to be an affordable option. We want those people thinking, ‘If only we could afford a deck this year,’ to come and see us. It might be a lot more affordable than they think.”
In a time when vacations are getting more and more expensive and out of reach for most, Deckcetera is focusing on the place where we visit the most: our backyard. As its name suggests, Deckcetera is passionate about decks, patios and fencing, and all things backyard. Giesbrecht is especially pleased with the innovative fencing options, available in six colours and a variety of different styles. And, he points out, completely maintenance-free.
Of course, one of Deckcetera’s big draws is its line of spas and hot tubs. Swim spas, in particular, are becoming quite popular, with the exercise and relaxation formats they provide in a relatively compact space.
“They range from 13 to 22 feet, and you can have a dual zone that includes a hot tub at one end,” says Giesbrecht, adding that owners can relax, swim in place, do aqua aerobics, and even attach a boogie board for kids to play around on.
“A swim spa,” he says, “brings you a large range of activities in a contained space.”
Pergolas, backyard furniture sets, and hot tubs are always in stock at Deckcetera as well. In fact, a new line of furniture arrived just in time for the new location–” innovative, beautiful, and built to last.” says Giesbrecht, “but at a very reasonable price.”
And the hot tubs…well, who can resist a hot tub in the Manitoba winter?
“It’ll be a great time to check out new hot tubs,” says Giesbrecht, referring to the August 4th location event. “Nothing helps you deal with the winter blues quite like a spa.”
Deckcetera will be open at the corner of Highway 12 and Loewen Blvd from just after the parade until 8:00 p.m. on the 4th, and from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday the 5th.
