Happy Holidays! Taking a Look Back at 2016



Everyone at all four Grand River Natural Stone locations would like to wish the very best of the season to you and your family.

As we plan and look ahead to 2017, it’s a good time to look back at the year that was.

2016 turned out to be a fantastic year – not only for us but for our customers too.

So we’d to also say thank you to everyone who visited us in Kitchener, Stoney Creek, London & Fergus and chose Grand River Natural Stone for their landscaping products and projects.

Here, then, are some of the highlights from the past year.

Big events

2016 was all about the big event when you consider:

In March…

  • We hosted the 2016 Grand River Natural Stone Landscape Symposium.

Contractors and designers from all over came to hear guest speakers Nathan Helder & Dave Maciulis and to meet with sales reps from top industry suppliers.

In August…

  • Banas Stones held a special coffee break breakfast at our Stoney Creek location.

With Banas Stone representatives on site – and with fresh coffee and donuts too – contractors go to learn about new products and their features.

  • gr-bulletWe started accepting submissions for the 2016 Grandies Hardscape Awards.

Last year’s Grandies showcased some incredible projects.

We can’t wait to see what this year’s Grandie entrants have in store (and you still enter if you want).


Also in September…

  • Grand River Natural Stone was proud to participate in the Lambeth Optimists Harvestfest Parade.

We polished up our truck, attached a fall-themed float trailer to the back and helped promote the excellent work the Lambeth Optimist Club does.

In November…

  • Unilock natural stone and Grand River Natural Stone hosted a special BBQ lunch.

This contractor only BBQ featured mouth watering food and gave contractors a sneak peek at new Unilock products for 2017.

Plenty of new items and landscaping supplies made their 2016 debut at Grand River Natural Stone.

  • Techniseal paving stone sealers and cleaners
  • Stunning Owen Sound Natural stone steps
  • Signature Rosetta Stone products (such as the Outcropping Collection & Rockton Collection)
