CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Yankee Home Improvement in Chicopee is celebrating July 4th with a grand reopening.
Chicopee Mayor Richard Kos attended the ribbon cutting ceremony and the unveiling of the new Yankee home branding and images on Tuesday.
The founder, Ger Ronan, said the store never closed, but the reopening was more of a restart with new branding, new pictures and new messages.
“I met the mayor about a year ago, we had lunch, we were working on the Harmony House project, and he was helping and saying, ‘Have you ever cut a tape? ‘I said no, I didn’t cut a tape,’ you should cut a tape, you should do a big reopening, ‘and I did,’ said Ronan. ‘Today was the new day we renamed the company Logo, new direction, new growth. “
The reopening took place Tuesday afternoon at Yankee Home’s headquarters at 36 Justin Drive. The event included a ribbon cutting ceremony and lunch.
“It is the beginning of a new chapter in the history of this company,” said Ronan.
In 2007, Ronan was tricked by a dishonest roofer who got away with a deposit of $ 2,500. That’s why he started Yankee Home, a contractor with a 100 percent money-back guarantee.
