Feedback: Manor Abbey operations, plans for growth
New Adair company was recruited to Adair County by Mark Karnes
To the editor, CM
Just a note on the report at the April 10th fiscal court meeting about our company.
Manor Abbey is a Kentucky LLC which is owned by Cory Devine who is from Canada and James Skidmore who is from England.
Manor Abbey imports hand painted reproduction oil paintings, pre-made frames and frame moldings from studios in China which are owned by Mr. Devine and Mr. Skidmore. Paintings are stretched and framed and then shipped to retailers all over North America.
We are also doing customer service for the on-line retail business, Oceanbridge.com, which is also owned by Mr. Devine and Mr. Skidmore.
Libby and I do want to thank Mark Karnes for making his facility available to us during our efforts to bring Manor Abbey to Columbia.
Manor Abbey has two full time, two part time employees and definite plans to grow. We are excited that along with Manor Abbey's growth we will soon be able to provide many more jobs for residents of Adair County and the surrounding area.

Jones reported the activity of Manor Abbey, but gave full credit to Mark Karnes recruiting the company to Adair County. CACIDA claimed no credit nor was it due any.
