Within the last three years, the Town of Drumheller has awarded many businesses in the valley with a storefront grant.

Jurassic Ink building owner, Nick Sereda, was thrilled to have received the grant from the Town.

"(It's a) matching grant of $2,500," Sereda said. "We're going to redo the outside of the Tattoo Shop and make it a little more presentable."

"It's great, it helps out a lot."

Sereda is pitching in $2,500 and so too will the Town of Drumheller.  He said that he has an idea of what the new look will be for the building's storefront, but for now he's happy that it was awarded to him.

All the grants awarded were of equal amounts of $2500, excluding the Drumheller Learning center. 

"It's a little bit of work to get quotes together to go to the town with a plan," he concluded. "It'll just be eye catching and help beautify the town."
