Birkey’s in Hudson, Ill., will close Friday, Aug. 27th and re-open our business on Monday, Aug. 30th in Bloomington
We have been pleased to serve you for many years at our Hudson location. As you know, we have outgrown that facility and have looked to find a better answer to support you in a more robust manner. As announced earlier, we purchased the Interstate Center in Bloomington and have been feverishly working to renovate it to meet our operational needs.
We are happy to announce we will be opening the new Bloomington store on Monday, August 30th at 7:30 a.m. That means that we will be winding down operations at Hudson effective on Friday, August 27th at 5:00 p.m. We also have a number of new people who will be joining our operation. Curt Arseneau will join the parts team at the new location. Curt has over 30 years experience in both agriculture and construction equipment products. Also, Jeff Kuhns will be assisting Todd with the day-to-day operations. Jeff has been with Birkey’s for over 17 years with experience in both brands as office manager at our Urbana Ag and CE location.
We will be expanding our parts drop box service as well and will be announcing our revised route for the fall season. On January 1st, we will close our Parts Distribution Center in Rantoul and reopen at the Interstate Center. This move will allow us to reach all of our locations each day, which will greatly improve our parts shuttle delivery service. At the same time we will be consolidating our Bulk Oil facilities that currently operate at Rantoul and Galesburg and move that function to the Interstate Center as well.
Because of the central location and the sheer size of the facility, the Interstate Center will allow us to better serve you in a number of ways. We will have our challenges in terms of this transition and we ask for your continued understanding as we make this adjustment. In the long run, we are very confident that the new Bloomington location will allow us to better serve you. We will be continuing to complete our renovations there this fall but will work with you to take care of your needs. From all of us at Birkey’s, we would like to thank you for your patience in advance and let you know we appreciate your business in the past at our Hudson store and look forward to servicing all of your needs at our new Bloomington location.
