Ideal Supply has Three New Locations
Written by Ideal Supply, October 27th, 2014
Ideal Supply, which has been operating for almost 90 years and has 30 branches across Southwestern Ontario, has recently relocated 3 of our branch locations. The new stores in Exeter, New Hamburg and Parry Sound all feature new highly visible locations, as well as bright and roomy interiors. All three branches have been designed to reduce our carbon footprint and provide a more Eco friendly experience for our customers. With the installation of LED light fixtures, occupancy sensors, and other energy saving products, it will reduce our overall carbon footprint significantly.
The New Hamburg branch is now located at 43 Arnold Street, (just around the corner from the old store). In our previous location, the New Hamburg Branch was about 1800sq/ft, and by moving to our new location we have increased our warehouse show room space to 4000 sq/ft to support a wider selection and additional inventory. The expansion of the store size also means that Ideal Supply has increased the store’s inventory. “The additional Automotive inventory is designed to support the local vehicle population and our larger showroom will make our Automotive supplies more readily available to all of our customers”, states the New Hamburg Store Manager, Marty Keane.
The Exeter Branch has also moved to a new location just down the street to 176 Thames Road West. Again the new location has expanded to give us more room, changing dramatically from 2400sq/ft to 6000 sq/ft. The increase in space has allowed us to support Electrical inventory products, thus making Exeter a full multi-line Ideal Supply location servicing not only Automotive but Electrical and Industrial customers too. The new and larger store also gives us the opportunity to better serve our contractors by having more inventory readily available for Electrical and Industrial customers. Trevor Agombar, the Exeter Store Manager states, “Our sales have already increased with the new location and we have secured a variety of new customers.”
The Parry Sound location is brand new and is located at 12 Seguin Street, Unit # 1. The new location in Parry Sound gives us a higher profile in town because of our dynamic location. We have increased our show room from 1800sq/ft to 6000 sq/ft. The location allows us to better serve our customers, because of our expanded inventory selection. We offer a service supply solution for all three divisions. Jeff Shaw, Parry Sound Branch Manager illustrates this best by stating, “By including the Electrical/Industrial divisions in our already successful Automotive aftermarket sector, we are able to offer our precedent service and selection by being a one-stop-shop for our customers.”
Be sure to stop in to any one of these new locations if you are passing by to see what our new and improved branches have to offer.
