Passing of my business partner Anthony j. Westlake in Victoria

Posted & filed under News & Press.

Dear friends and clients,
I would like to say a few words in honor of my partner in Victoria outlet Anthony.
I have had the privilege of knowing Tony for twenty-three years and formed a successful business partnership with him for seventeen of those years.
When I first met Tony I could tell he was a man of integrity, and a gentlemen with a heart of gold and a fantastic sense of humor. He was a man that even if he or anyone around him was having a bad day,he would always find a way to cheer you up and make the problem seem much smaller than it was.
I remember ii like it happened yesterday,when we decided to open retail store in Victoria despite everything that was unknown to us.However, one thing I was sure of was that knowing the kind of man Tony was,the business would be succesful.
Over the course of this partnership,he touched so many lives and created good client relationships that turned into great friendships.He was furthermore a very good family man who devoted his life to his wife and kids.I am deeply sorrowful that his life was cut short, as I know he was dreaming about having a retirement to spend more time with his family and his passion for music.
I would like to say to him so long old friend,thanks for everything and the countless years of loyalty and friendship.I will always love and remember you for the good man that you were.May you rest in peace.

Dear valued customers and friends,
Recently, it has come to our attention that an unknown individual,named Ali posing as a member of the mavyan family,has been contacting our clients and stating that the family has returned to Iran to deal with the family emergency.(the mavyan family is Turkish Armenians from Turkey)This individual is furthermore claiming that there is unsold stock that must be liquidated at a very big discounted price as cash deal.
We are very concerned about this matter and would like to express, and warn to our valued customers and potential clients that this statements are completely untrue, and this unknown individual has no connection either familial or business to the Mavyan family or mavyan carpets or Tolliday carpet services.
We thank you very much for your continued business,and we are working hard to ensure that this matter is resolved.
