We are proud to announce that Carter Ave Frame Shop is officially a family business. Tim Smith has been the owner of Carter Ave. Frame Shop for 31 years. In March of 2016, Tim’s son Michael joined the business. In March 2017 Michael became part owner of the business to form a father/son partnership.
Michael had this to say about the sharing ownership with Tim:
I am very thankful to be involved in the business. Tim has owned the shop my entire life. It has always been an intriguing venture for me. When the opportunity presented itself, I knew right away I wanted to be part of the business. I have really enjoyed working with my father. I also love seeing what customers bring us to frame, hearing their stories, and designing framing they love. I hope to continue the work that Tim started and provide our customers with quality work going forward.
Tim responded, “Mike has natural design ability and a great work ethic. He really gets customer service, which is what we have always been about. It is a joy to work with him.”
On a fun note, Mike was born on Tim’s 30th birthday. Mike joined Carter Ave. Frame Shop on their birthday, March 2nd, 2016. The deal was finalized on March 2nd, 2017.
