WHITE RIVER JUNCTION, Vt. — According to a report from Valley News, L.F. Trottier & Sons is moving about 15 miles south from White River Junction, Vt., to a larger facility in Hartland, Vt. A fixture in downtown White River Junction for the past 24 years, the dealership will move from the 3,800 square foot facility to an 8,000 square foot facility previously occupied by a motorsports dealership.
According to the Valley News report:
"Store manager Tom Trottier cites the business’ success as the motivation for the move.
"'We’ve outgrown the space quite a lot in the last couple of years,' Trottier said by telephone Friday. 'It’s not quite as user friendly as we’d like … There are a lot of people in the area now, and parking is precious.'
"The new space boasts 3,200 square feet that will serve as a showroom, in addition to a shop, a storage shed and a garage. All but one of the five White River Junction employees likely will move over to the new location, Trottier said, and an additional employee or two likely will be hired."
The John Deere dealer has an additional location about 30 miles north in South Royalton, Vt.
