Before opening Glenn's Appliance in September 1995, I spent 20 years in the U.S. Navy retiring as a Chief Hospital Corpsman.
During my naval career I met many wonderful people and travelled the world. Some on board a guided missile cruiser in the Mediterranean, then on the submarine USS Nathaniel Greene in the North Atlantic. Being submerged for months at a time I learned to appreciate sunsets and fresh air. When I transferred from submarines to the Marine Corp 2nd FSSG I had more fresh air and mud than I knew what to do with. After a tour in Okinawa, Japan, the Navy transferred me to a U.S. Army command as a medical department Chief to process new recruits into the Armed Forces.
During this time, I took a part time job at a "mom and pop" appliance store to help with the expense of a new home and growing family. During my five years there I learned all about the appliance business, including sales and service.
Once retired from the Navy and having manufacturer training under my belt, my wife and I decided to move our family to New Hampshire and start our own appliance business. We opened our store in September of 1995 and are proud to call Manchester our home. We raised two wonderful boys, now young men.
I am proud of the fact that we are a "mom and pop" store in the town that I also live in. I enjoy supporting the community as a member of the Queen City Rotary Club and enjoy sharing my old Navy stories with people, and hearing stories of others.
Visit me at the store and chat anytime.
