Yes there is an Allan Johnston in the store. In 1995, my wife Sharen and I set out towards a dream of operating a successful sales and repair facility. We had embarked on the tricky but rewarding journey towards becoming a highly respected player in the power sport and lawn & garden sales and service industry.
Back then, after being in the field for nearly 20 years, I strongly felt a quality equipment sales and service facility was what our region needed. After the first year operating in the existing building from which my father and his family successfully operated a wholesale company since 1926, we saw that a larger, modern facility was needed to grow the business. So the steps began to design and build our existing building. Today’s modern 7500 sq. ft. structure houses 2500 sq. ft. of service and 5000 sq. ft. of showroom and parts.
With the facility in place, the next steps were to attract the best in industry professionals to help run the new creation, so we added to our team a number of skilled technicians, top quality parts and sales people, and dedicated administration staff.
Now with the best team to back the business in place, we focused our energies on the best products to offer our customers. With the professional, home owner, and farmers in mind, we studied the products that would best service their every day needs. From this came the decision to represent only the industry leaders. This way our customers would have the finest products at affordable pricing and they would have comfort knowing that the chosen manufactures would be building world class products for decades to come, and that we would be able to back those products for decades to come.
Now more than ever is the right time to experience the Allan Johnston difference and see that which we have worked so hard to become. That said, we would like to invite everyone to stop by and see for yourself what makes us different from the competition - the service, the selection, and the people we are so proud of.
So from Sharen, myself, our family, and the people we are very proud to call our staff: Mike, Will, Janice, Shawn, Melissa, Ken, Amy, Sean and Justin, we all look forward to servicing your needs, and hope to see everyone soon.
