Speyside Equity purchases McGregor & Thompson Hardware Ltd. and Shanahan’s LP

Earlier this year, VICA Members McGregor & Thompson Hardware Ltd. and Shanahan’s Limited Partnership were purchased by Speyside Equity. Below is a note from Stuart Cuthbert, General Manager Vancouver Island McGregor & Thompson and Dean Shultz, Regional Manager (BC) of Shanahan's Holdings.

The McGregor Group and Shanahan's LP

We are excited to announce that in Victoria we are moving to a consolidated branch operation and we expect to open as of March 12018 (we will be a consolidating the commercial operations of both branches into a new facility at 3206 Jutland Road). This new facility and combined resources will enable us to better service our customers and execute on projects of all sizes.

All sales and transactions at the Jutland Road location will be through McGregor & Thompson Hardware Ltd., however if you prefer, Shanahan’s Surrey will also offer service to Vancouver Island.

As of November 1, 2017, we will be closing the Shanahan’s Victoria operation on David Street and sub leasing the space.  In the interim period before we move to Jutland Road, all Shanahan’s Victoria staff will work out of the McGregor & Thompson Hardware at 466 Bay Street.

All existing projects with Shanahan’s will continue to be managed by your Shanahan’s representatives. All new projects will be managed through McGregor & Thompson Hardware Ltd., Victoria.

McGregor & Shanahan’s thank you for your past support, and look forward to a future of growing together to serve you better.

Thank you,
Stuart Cuthbert                                                                        Dean Shultz
