To celebrate the completion of a major renovation to its Stratford location, Riesterer & Schnell hosted a Customer Appreciation and Grand Re-Opening event March 10 that drew around 400 guests, who were greeted with food, games, tours, prizes and John Deere equipment.
Riesterer & Schnell opened the doors to the updated store to show its gratitude to the community and all of its customers who helped make the project possible.
Tom Vande Corput, Director of Operations and CFO for Riesterer & Schnell explains, “We are grateful for the opportunity to serve Stratford and all of the communities here in Central Wisconsin. What a wonderful and welcoming community; certainly one we are proud to be a part of.”
The renovation, which began in August 2015 and was completed this month, added 12,000 square feet to the shop, 1,600 square feet to the parts area, a loading dock, four new offices, a lunch room and a conference room. The showroom was also given a facelift with a new floor and a relocation of the receptionist desk.
During a brief ribbon-cutting ceremony, John Deere representative Jay Casper presented Riesterer & Schnell a picture of the Deere & Company world headquarters as a token of appreciation for the company’s dedication to serving Stratford and its surrounding communities.
The much-needed space will allow Riesterer & Schnell to continue providing the highest level of service to all of its customers.
Riesterer & Schnell would like to thank the following event sponsors and suppliers for the event: Keller, Inc.; Oxbo; Degelman; The Fresh Country Aire; Seehafer Farm Creamery; Weber’s Farm Store; LeGrander’s Cheese; Nasonville Dairy; and Kevin Jay Attoe (aka DJ Barney Rubble).
