To the Editor,
As a longtime cottager in the Minden Hills area, I know there are many wonderful businesses, from store owners to the many companies available to fulfill or requests.
I would like to mention two that I have recently had the pleasure of working with at our cottage.
John Fountain Electric – and particular mention of Brad.
Our cottage is on an island which adds an additional caveat to getting things done. However, working as a team with John, Brad and Greg we were able to get what we needed to service our Internet needs and TV requests. Brad had a wealth of knowledge to share, giving us the best advice on what services would best suit our needs and problem-solved issues that arose in the installations. He was always pleasant and willing to go the extra mile.
Minden Electric – I have wanted to install ceiling fans in our cottage for years but ran into difficulties with our place being an older cottage with a cathedral ceiling.
I had the pleasure of speaking to Angie, the receptionist who helped me problem solve our needs and the best way to tackle them. Through pictures sent and multiple emails we were able to get the project started.
Tim arrived one Monday morning and what a great job he did! His suggestions, solutions and execution to some of the issues we had with this task were just excellent. Kudos to Steve, owner of Minden Electric for hiring such a skilled individual.
Up River Trading Company – I would be remiss not to mention this fabulous store on Minden’s Main Street. So many interesting products,from cards to gifts to coffee. It is a must-stop for my friends visiting from Toronto.
There are many other wonderful companies in Minden but felt I needed to comment on these three that have stood out for me this year.
