Since October 1989, Denny’s Lawn & Garden has been providing power equipment and service to the Twin Ports. We are a locally owned and operated business based in Duluth, Minnesota. Let us tell you more about our company and our colorful history.
How We Started
Our company is named after our founder, Denny Moran. In March 2008, the company was sold to Scott Cyr, our owner and manager to this day. Back in 1980, Scott served as Denny’s employee in the adjoining hardware store before he transferred to the lawn and garden store as a manager in 1989. Scott performed all the duties needed for the outdoor power equipment to be sold in the shop. He also completed a college degree at UMD alongside working at Denny’s.
How We Took the Industry by Storm
In October 31, 1991, a mega storm known as the 1991 Halloween Blizzard hit most of Eastern Minnesota and some parts of the Upper Midwest. That major winter storm raged for over three days and affected most of our cities. Duluth even received as much as 36.9 inches of snow, which went down in history as the largest single storm in Minnesota history.
That calamity was the real turning point for the store. Residents and businesses needed tools like power brooms, snowthrowers, and chainsaws to restore their properties, and we made sure they got what they need. The company has grown ever since that fateful day. We started out as a two-employee business, with only $350,000 in sales during our first year. Today, Denny’s Lawn & Garden is a company with 12 employees that generates over $2,500,000 annually.
At present, we offer the most highly rated equipment from major brands like Ariens, Toro, Cub Cadet, Scag, and Sears. We have a comprehensive inventory of household lawn mowers, compact generators, professional-grade snowthrowers, chainsaws, and construction pumps. We also sell parts and accessories, and offer repairs and maintenance work on the brands and equipment we carry.
Customers like you have been the most influential part of this growth. It’s a privilege to be your go-to store for outdoor power equipment, and we plan on keeping that role for years to come.
