PRIOR TO ATLAS DÈCOR
In 1996 Anna-Marie and her husband, Allen, left permanent employment and embarked on their first of many adventures and bought a carpet shop. Within a short time they turned the shop around from a struggling business into a thriving success which allowed them to diversify and branch out to new opportunities. They added a picture framing and Upholstery business to their portfolio.
During this time they also embarked on developing a small complex of 5 shops. They also aquired several residential properties that were renovated and either rented or sold.
In 2000 Allen and Anna-Marie decided to immigrate to New Zealand and all their businesses were sold. They arrived in NZ in July 2001.
