Three employees are now the owners of Grant Floors and Interiors in Comox.



Three employees are now the owners of Grant Floors and Interiors in Comox.

Wilf Facey, Cory Harris and Wayne Baxter banded together to buy the business carrying on in the same great location on Guthrie Road, with the high-quality products and exceptional customer service that Grant’s is known for, but with a twist moving forward as Signature West Floor and Window Fashions Inc.

Wilf Facey is a second-generation installer and a familiar face around the Comox Valley. He has worked in the flooring industry for 30 years.

In 1992, Wilf signed on with Tom and Holly Grant the founders of Grant Floors (who sold it in 2007) and he’s been there ever since. In 2006, Wilf moved into the office to oversee the installers and commercial sales.

Like Wilf, Cory Harris is a craftsman with 30 years in the flooring industry. The first 28 were spent in the Greater Victoria area, but after visiting the Comox Valley with his family, they fell in love with the amazing atmosphere here and they moved up two years ago. He has worked at Grant Floors since. Cory is talented and meticulous and his specialty is creative tile work.

Completing the trio is Wayne Baxter. He began his window fashions’ career in 1988 in White Rock with The Added Touch Interiors where he spent 17 successful years as their service manager.

Attracted by the energy of the Comox Valley Wayne and his family moved here in 2004 and joined Grant Floors. Since then, his stellar reputation for custom blind and drapery designs continues to grow.

Wilf, Cory, Wayne and the rest of the Signature West team are very excited about carrying on the tradition of exceptional quality and customer service for the residents of the Comox Valley.

Signature West Floor & Window Fashions Inc. is open Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Signature is at 7–821 Shamrock Pl. in Comox, off Guthrie Road, just west of Anderton Road.
