How did you/your business get started, and why did you choose Timmins?
The business was open and operating when we purchased it. We wanted to be #1 in the Timmins region and to serve customers in our own way.
What has your experience doing business in Timmins been like?
Good. Local people are good people; remember to keep your business local and support your community.
What is the biggest challenge you have overcome as a business?
Managing growth – we’re moving to a brand new location, down the road and just past Canadian Tire.
You are expanding to a brand new location as of November 28 – what has the road leading up to this move been like? To what do you attribute this success?
We provide good customer service, and the new larger location to display and deal with customers will be the story to success.
Are there any future projects or plans on the horizon that you would like people to know about?
We are planning to start carrying a larger stock of Lund Boats and Mercury. Other things are coming in the future but we cannot divulge anything too specific at this time.
We would like to thank our customers for their support over the years, and we look forward to serving all their needs at our new location. We invite everyone to come out and check out what we have. We will need some time to organize once we’ve moved in to our new location so hopefully everyone will be cooperative.
Again, thanks for the business - without our customers, our level of success would not be where it is now.
