Customer service fuels growth

9 years ago

Aroostook Milling has been keeping people in the greater Houlton area supplied with many wonderful displays of plants, fruit trees, flowers and shrubs from their location at 15 Hillview Ave. in Houlton.

And now that same great service is available to people in Presque Isle as a second store has opened at 191 Parsons St.

With all the big chain stores and Internet shopping available, it’s important that our customers receive the attention a small, locally-owned business can provide. And now that summer is slipping away, the folks at Aroostook Milling are excited to be your Harman Stove dealer. Aroostook Milling is the place to view and purchase your new pellet stove that can be maintained by a professional stove technician. Stoves can also be installed by our technicians.

We know our customers and provide the service they can rely upon. Whether it’s gardening supplies in the spring and summer or our pellet stoves in the fall and winter, we provide the one-on-one service and interaction that makes us stand out.

Since 1948, area residents know they will find the supplies they need: Blue Seal feed, Aroostook Milling Company Brand feed, lawn and garden supplies, a new line of grain free dog food has recently been added including “Taste of the Wild,” “Blue Buffalo,” “Marick” and “Fromm” brands, PRO PAC ultimates, animal care products, wood pellets, coal and pest control products are but a few of the many items found inside.

The diverse amount of products they carry, and their friendly and knowledgeable staff are the strengths of the business. The store owners are Nick Crane, Mark Crane and Ian Crane. Steve Bennett is a trained Harman Stove technician, store clerks are Kathy Wiggins and Doug Batchelder. Ian Gardiner and Josh Hall work in the feed mill. Rachel and June Horton handle all office and financial matters. Jessica Beaulieu works at the Presque Isle location.
