2009 Business Leader of the Year Award
As many other businesses left Mt. Pleasant area, two years ago John acquired a 9,000 square foot location on Karner Road. Because of customer concerns, it was time for a decision going forward. Rather than leave Schenectady, the opportunity to participate in a Metroplex – Schenectady County Redevelopment building on Broadway, less than a mile from the Crane Street location presented the ideal option. The location on Broadway is very exciting because of the additional people who will come to the area because of expansion and development of the neighborhood.
Among the many citations and honors that John and his business have received, his most exciting ones were the years that his business was listed in Twice Magazines annual Report of the “Top 100 Major Appliance Retailers in the US” (which included chain stores as well as independents), particularly in the past two challenging years.
John has 5 children, 11 Grandchildren, and is proud to be entrepreneur in Schenectady.
