Over the 26 years we have operated Canning A.R.T.S. one of the most common questions is "Why do we have the dots in our business name?".
Well ARTS was chosen because of the fact we sold original artworks (among many other things) but it also had another meaning. My name is Anthony, my wife is Rhonda and our two children are Tiffany and Samantha. So the first letters of our names are A.R.T.S. This is also in age order. Now we didn't realize this until we were looking for a name for our shop but once we did it was obvious that this should be name we use.
Hope this answers the question.
