We interviewed Tim Cunningham, Chairman of the WV Home Show and Randy Allio with J&R Creations a long-time exhibitor at the show.
The WV Home Show is in its 51st year. After cancelling the show last year due to the Covid pandemic, Tim thinks homeowners are excited to see what’s new in home improvement and really all things ‘Home’.
We talked with Randy about the importance to small business the WV Home Show has on their livelihood. J&R Creations is a custom-built wood business specializing in cabinets, bookcases and shelving.
