Smitty's 65-year-old furniture business opens in Kitchener
When asked what has made Smitty's Fine Furniture a lasting success, Elmer Schmidt, 91, talks about his drive from Hanover to Montreal.
"We always looked after whatever we sold. I would drive as far as Montreal on service calls," said Schmidt who teamed with his father, Edward (who was known as Smitty) and brothers Gordon and Lloyd to launch the business in Hanover in 1949.
