Greg Demcy Town Talk
Hi Everyone! It's Greg Demcy here, coming to you from my PBS television series, The Man about Town. If you are familiar with my show, you will know that I have covered off many businesses found in local communities, just like yours, in an effort to promote a local business support movement.This has been a very successful venture for me and I have found it to be very satisfying. I have met a lot of local business owners personally and had an opportunity to learn who they are, what they do, and why they do it.Each one has a different story and different motivation for what they do. But one thing that they have in common is to be present and contributing to the communities in which they operate and live. Anyway that I and my team can support them, we intend to do just that.
You Asked For It!
So, the creation of this web page is to put some of my favorite companies and businesses on the map! The virtual map called the internet. I have had a few requests from some of our viewers about past stories that we have delivered. "What was the name of that company you recommended back in January? The one that does the custom tiling?" Hey, I get it! You don't normally sit down to catch an episode with pen and paper ready to jot down details that are aired!
The thought came to mind, during a team production meeting, that we should be documenting some of these businesses somewhere. Thus, the birth of the idea of creating a webpage for viewers to come back to and get info about these businesses. And this will further support the local markets! Brilliant idea!!
So, here's our plan. We are going to update this page with references to different businesses we have come across in your communities. Come back often to see what has been added since your last visit.
And let's support the local business owner, living in your community, who in turn is helping to support you!
Let's Get this Going!

They almost never stand still! Being very active in the Edmonton Junk Removal arena, you may have already seen them or used them in the past. Remember when they took me on for the day as a loader?
