Gescan Makes Smooth Move to New Branch Location in Estevan
ESTEVAN, SK – This past December 3rd and 4th, Gescan’s branch in Estevan moved to a new address, 403 Kensington Ave., after spending more than 34 years at 101- 6th Street. They officially opened the doors and welcomed customers to the new location on December 6th.
Gescan invested $75K in minor renovations, restructuring existing shelves and setting up the facilities with new furniture, which now offers easier access for customers with an improved warehouse layout to find products quicker, as well as an enhanced product mix. Comments from customers have included “Bigger, better and more appealing,” according to Branch Manager, Gerry Pakish. Pakish said, “We are totally satisfied with our new location.”
Gescan Estevan outgrew its existing locations and needed more warehouse and compound space to better service customers, something the new building “definitely provides us with”, said Pakish. “Another electrical distributor was in the building before us, all the racking and shelving was left in place making the move less stressful,” Pakish continued. He added, “We had an excellent support team for our move. Everything went well, I was very satisfied with how smooth the transition was. A huge thank you to all! A great big thank you to the marketing team for all the signage as well – got great comments from customers.”
What hasn’t changed is the great service Gescan customers have come to know and love, including easy online ordering and pickup in-store at the Express Pick-Up counter to help shoppers save time and skip lines; shoppers simply order online or over the phone, select “pick up” method at checkout and pick up their order from the Express Counter. The phone number is also the same, but now customers can text the branch and get a response as soon as someone is available with its new Texting Program.
