On December 8, 1962, two families started Picture Butte Auction Mart - The Perlich family and the Juris family. 
In 1967, the Perlich's left to begin their own venture. The Juris family continued to operate the auction mart until 2001 when it was purchased by the Dunsbergen family, who operated it for the next 20 years. Picture Butte Auction Market was then bought by the deLeeuw and Slingerland families in 2021, and they are now the current owners of Picture Butte Auction Ltd.
