Business Buzz: Custom Auto and Paint moves to new location
March 23, 2014
Custom Auto and Paint in Craig recently moved into the old Intermountain Appliance location at 395 School St.
The business has been in Craig for over a year now, opening Nov. 1, 2012, at 324 School St. — a location that wasn't ideal for growth, owner James Hand said.
"We were at the other end of School Street, which was a dead end," Hand said. "It's a good location. We're happy to be here. We're also getting ready to expand, do some detailing and some windshields."
Custom Auto and Paint now is located on a prominent streetscape spot at Fourth and School streets.

Tipton helps Colorado farming business move
Rep. Scott Tipton, R-Colo., praised the announcement that United States farmers now will be able to expand potato exports into Mexico, according to a release from Tipton's office. The Mexican government published the final regulations Thursday.
Since being elected to Congress, Tipton has worked to advance policies that open up new markets for Colorado agriculture. To that end, he has been involved in work with the Mexican consulate to increase San Luis Valley potato exports to that country. Tipton has used his chairmanship of the House Small Business Subcommittee on Agriculture, Energy and Trade to shine light on the issue and push for increased U.S. potato exports.
The new bilateral agreement eases restrictions to enhance fair trade and allows increased exports of high-quality U.S. potatoes into Mexico.
