Some call it a complex. Some call it a not-so-mini mall. But everyone’s familiar with Keystone Agri-Motive, Keystone SAR, Highway 12 NAPA Auto Parts, and Penner Trailers – which together make up the Penner Group of Companies located on Highway 12 North in Steinbach.

The success of these businesses is evident by their growth, and they’re grateful for all their customers, clients, and friends. To say thank you, they’re hosting a giant Customer Appreciation event on Saturday, April 29th from 10 am until 3 pm.

Keith Friesen is Vice President of the Penner Group of Companies. He says this is a great opportunity to express their gratitude to the community.

“We want to thank all the people that have made us successful over the years and give them some free coffee and donuts in the morning and a free lunch and just have a chance for our staff to meet, greet, and have some conversation with them, on a more casual level.”

Friesen notes that this will be a larger event, with each business giving away a grand prize and putting on impressive sales.

“Because we have such a variety of offerings, from lawn and garden to auto parts to trailers to any toy you want to drive out on the road or on a trail in the sense of power sport -- our goal is to bring people to enjoy and experience what all have to offer.”

Visitors to the event will want to be sure they set foot in each business to enter the different draws and take advantage of the various sales each has to offer.

At Keystone SAR, save 15% off ride gear and apparel. While there, be sure to enter the draw for a chance to win one of two Husqvarna kid's electric bikes.

At Penner Trailers, enter the draw for a Triumph utility trailer. Then pick up 2-inch tie-down straps for $15 each, save 15% off Curt adjustable hitches, and get 10% off UWS aluminum toolboxes.

“Any trailering tie-downs, any hitch-towing products, will be discounted up to 25% off,” adds Friesen.

At NAPA Auto Parts, visitors can enter for a chance to win a tool chest. As for sales, pick up NAPA ProFormer synthetic oil in 5W20 and 5W30 for just $19.99 for a five-litre jug, and save 15% off all other parts in the store.

Keystone Agri-Motive is hosting several draws. They’re giving away a Kubota zero-turn mower, a Shop Pack from Jet Tools, a Welding Pack from Linde, AND a Cub Cadet lawn tractor. Plus shoppers will enjoy deals on lawnmower batteries, lawn fertilizer, and Kubota oil and filters. Plus, for Milwaukee Days, they’re giving away a Milwaukee push mower.

Friesen elaborates. “For Milwaukee Days, we’ll have huge specials and deals running Friday and Saturday of that weekend.”

Food is a large part of saying thank you! So come enjoy free mini donuts from 11-1, free popcorn, and a free lunch served by Teen Challenge from 11:30 to 1:30.

Make sure you bring your kids, too! There will be balloons, temporary tattoos, and a special demo just for kids:

“We're going to have a little Kubota BX tractor with a little mini backhoe that kids can come and play around in the dirt and sand with!”

The Penner Group of Companies are looking forward to seeing you at their Customer Appreciation Event. They’ll be welcoming you with free food, tons of sales, lots of giveaways, and plenty of fun stuff for the kids. It's all happening on Saturday, April 29th from 10 'til 3, at 339 Highway 12 North in Steinbach!
