Jon-Don makes West Coast expansion

June 5, 2007

Jon-Don’s recent acquisition of two new store locations – one in Seattle and one in Portland, Ore. – are the eighth and ninth locations to be added to the company roster, and the first on the West Coast.

“When we opened our Florida location last summer, we set our eyes on what we liked to call our ‘Final Frontier,’ the West Coast,” National Operations Manager Jim Paolella said. “Since we had to start from scratch when we opened in Florida…an opportunity to acquire McDowell Supply, Inc., a successful firm already established to function in the Jon-Don tradition, we knew we had struck gold. We expect the transition to be smooth and fast so we can serve our West Coast customers immediately.”

“We’re all excited about the potential for one and two-day shipping capabilities and an expansion of our robust educational programs in the West,” added Jon-Don Sales and Marketing Director Dave Howard.
