“This is one of the kindest and most courteous messages I have ever received from a retailer… an example of above-and-beyond customer service. It guarantees that I will be a return customer. I hope my words will help your customers to recognize they are dealing with a company that provides superior service and can be trusted – a rare thing these days.

“Thank you for making the search for diverse, high quality art pieces by Indigenous artists from across BC so accessible. The online store allows me to search in one place and helps me choose the right piece through photos, descriptions of the meaning of the pieces and symbols, and information about the artists. Once I’ve selected an item, delivery is affordable and efficient. This is one of the first places I look when seeking a particularly special gift for family, friends and colleagues. I am grateful to the artists for sharing their gifts through this platform and to the business team for personalized and responsive service.”

I couldn’t be happier with the experience I had with Venture West Native Arts. John worked with me to provide beautiful Indigenous ornaments* that were a hit with our attendees. His dedication to customer service was truly exceptional as he went above and beyond my expectations to ensure I received my order in time. I highly recommend John and Venture West Native Arts for anyone seeking one-of-a-kind gifts and outstanding service.
