Meet Andre & Bonnie Gauthier
Andre Gauthier always dreamed of owning his own business. He was also always handy with tools, so it wasn’t much of a stretch to see himself in a small engine repair business. He went into business with his wife, Bonnie and his mother in 2010 and at that time, it was the only small engine repair business in Fort St. James. Andre & Bonnie took over the business entirely in 2012 and are proud to have been able to build into it in the ensuing years, with much gratitude going to their customers for the shop’s success.
The Gauthiers have lived in Fort St. James since 2009, though Andre had spent much of his growing up time in Fort St. James. Since moving back, they have grown to cherish the community and especially the people that make it up. Being local business owners made it much easier for them to meet people after they first arrived, and the Gauthiers say they were warmly embraced by the locals. Having a small town business, they say, makes it easy to get to know their customers and what they want and need and then to be able to fill those needs. And in a small town, customers often become friends.
Andre and Bonnie quickly fell in love with the astounding scenery in and around Fort St. James. They admire the beautiful mountains, the lakes and all of the wonderful hiking trails. As ardent outdoors people, they try to get away for as many camping trips as they can. They also like to go quadding during their non-work time.
