What has been your proud­est mo­ment in busi­ness? We are very proud when new cus­tomers come into the store based on re­fer­rals from their friends and fam­ily. This tells us we are do­ing our job well. Great­est ad­vice ever re­ceived? Great­est ad­vice – from Dad, “Al­ways be hon­est and fair with your cus­tomers.”

De­scribe your team. Our team is sim­ple….”Mom” Bev, “Pop” Alex, our son Chasen, and of course our two res­i­dent pooches, Jessie and Lola.

What’s your favourite thing/place in the area? It’s the com­mu­nity of Lea­side... We have met so many won­der­ful peo­ple who have be­come not only clients, but friends. We are truly hum­bled by the trust they put in us.

What’s your se­cret to suc­cess? Our suc­cess is based on hon­esty, ex­pert prod­uct knowl­edge, good ad­vice, fair pric­ing, and in pro­vid­ing ex­cep­tional cus­tomer ser­vice. We strive to pro­vide a great ex­pe­ri­ence.

How long have you been in busi­ness? We first opened in May of 1946; ex­actly 72 years ago. We have been the proud own­ers of our fam­ily busi­ness since our parents’ re­tire­ment in 1992.

Own­ers: Alex & Bev Sim­mons
