The History of our Open House

In 1995, Alpine was the first to hold an Open House/Customer appreciation day to celebrate our major expansion and construction of our new building and our incredible customers.

We got so much support from our suppliers and friends that we decided to make it an annual event and make it a celebration of the professional landscapers that we get to serve.

The 2016 Open House was our 22nd annual Open House and celebrate over 40 years as Toronto`s premiere outdoor power equipment dealer.
