In 1948, Andrew and Harriett Van Wieren opened a gas station/lunchroom/bait shop at the corner of Division and Ottawa Beach Road.  Who would have thought with over 75 years of service, three generations of owners, and five generations of family employees – we would be ready to say goodbye!

Our family is overwhelmed by the love and support we have received from our local community throughout those decades.  Our customers have become part of our family, and we are beyond grateful for just as many generations of loyal supporters!  It truly has been a gift to watch your families grow, see the joy in giving your kids a balloon during an afternoon outing, answer questions during our annual lawn care seminars, help you with your many home improvement projects, enjoy a Saturday morning coffee/cookie, aid you in decorating your entire home for the Christmas season,  and YES – even teaching you how to slingshot a flying monkey!!!

To our employees – what can we say?  Your commitment to our business is and always has been steadfast!  We have weathered MANY storms, pandemics, depressions – and YOU have always been the heart of our success.  We are eternally grateful for the amazing times, countless memories, and unwavering dedication.  We would not have made it this far without your continued support and are forever thankful for your role in this journey!

We look forward to seeing many of you in the near future as we celebrate the success we have had and the legacy we leave.  Sales/liquidation will be starting Tuesday, April 16th and we thank you in advance for your flexibility and understanding with what a job this will be!  We will be CLOSED Monday, April 15th to prep for this amazing ‘going out of business’ sale!

This is not a goodbye but rather a ‘see you later’ as our entire family continues to live in and support the Holland community. 
Many are excited to embark on a long over due retirement and we all certainly look forward to seeing you around town! 

With grateful hearts,

The VanWieren Family
