WHO ARE THE OWNERS ? HERE'S VINCENT AND AMÉLIE !
''If we want to bring new customers in our store and in our region, we need to be proactive in finding new ideas to be attractive.'' - Amélie and Vincent
The story of Station Centre Ville !
Vincent was and still is, very motivated to develop business from scratch. Every time Amélie and Vincent went to Montreal or Toronto, Vincent would stop in every corner store to get some ideas, something that would make Amélie go crazy. Year after year, our store reach newer heights in sales. In 2011, our store needed TLC (Tender Loving Care) and we decided to invest in our 60 years old store. Doubling the size, a new DVD section, motel rooms and our beer section was bigger and offer more beer selection.
Since the beginning, June 2002, Station Centre Ville had one goal; be the BIGGEST beer seller in Témiscaming. We are very fortunate to be on the border of Ontario, since our beer price is way cheaper. We now sell Crafted Beer from Québec and Ontario.
2013 was the turning point, Amélie came and offer something we needed for a long time. A gourmet sandwicherie (prêt à manger section). Amélie brings a delighted and healthy touch to our team. Her passion is very contagious. Thank you Amélie for all your hard work, your passion, your positivism, your professionalism and your integrity.
