Remembering Tony Goemans

Everything we do here at Goemans Appliances and everything we stand for is because of Tony Goemans. If you’ve ever wondered where the name comes from – Tony is where it all began.

Tony, an immigrant from Holland, worked tirelessly from a young age helping his parents build a life for their family in Canada and then building a life for his own family. His incredible work ethic, determination and infectious personality propelled him into a career that would later on help him build Goemans Appliances.

To Tony, Goemans Appliances was always about family. Not just helping families who needed appliances, but by building relationships with his customers and making them feel like part of his own family. Since 1978 Tony ensured that Goemans was driven by one idea: character matters. Character, Knowledge, Integrity and Respect became the mission of Goemans Appliances early on and to this day remains the foundation of our company. 


Shopping During a Supply Shortage

We know you don’t need a reminder of what’s going on in the world these days, but we wanted to address a very important and relevant issue that is affecting many retailers and consumers as a result of the covid-19 outbreak. Many manufacturers around the world faced multi-month long shutdowns, reduced staff numbers and faced new regulations when they were allowed to reopen once again. It is with no doubt that when this occurred the world saw significant decreases in production on all levels.

This ripple affect hit the appliance industry hard. When manufacturers are behind due to shut down and limited staff, supply diminishes fast and ordering appliances takes much longer. We know that it’s hard to live without refrigerators, dishwashers and washing machines so we work hard to ensure we can get appliances to our customers as quickly as possible during this unprecedented supply shortage.
