Guindon Glenoco

Guindon Glenoco demolished in February of 2019

The  two bay full-service gas station and home heating oil distribution service was launched by Fern Guindon in 1956. A second service station was added on Marleau Avenue. Fern was our M.P.P. for many years.

Guindon’s sons were also active in the business, including Luc, who succeeded George Samis as our M.P.P. (1985-87) and who now serves as a Justice of the Peace since 2003.

Reportedly there are no plans to replace the structure at this time; the neighbour to the north can enjoy the extra sunshine pouring through her large southern windows.

The Guindon family also own the car and pet wash immediately to the south; the wash replaced their auto service station on the corner. A house on the property was previously sold and relocated outside of the City.

St. Lawrence Glass occupied part of the property in the past.  This ad is from 1967; we have some of their ads from as far back as 1958.

  1. Too bad they weren’t able to salvage any of the construction materials.
