The Promo Shoppe started in 1982 by John & Judy Dechaine as a sportswear & promotional products distributor in Dawson Creek. The company’s philosophy then, and still today, was to provide sports teams and corporate clients with the best quality products and service available to the client then and now at a fair price.
After graduating from Grande Prairie Regional College in Business Administration in 1990, John’s daughter Theresa joined the firm and has managed the growth in sales and products available to our ever increasing number of satisfied customers.
We had started out by doing imprinted t-shirts and caps & in 1995 we started our in-house embroidery program with a single head machine and have grown to 4 units to meet the demands of our clientele. We have also added a lasering engraving machine for the smaller jobs that require personalization. Since our inception, have expanded from 2 employees to 5 fulltime staff with brand new premises to serve you better.
In the past 30 years we have developed strong relationships with our many respected suppliers which helps us to pass on to our clients the best possible products and most competitive pricing available in the industry. We are also proud to be members of the PPPC (Promotional Products Professionals of Canada) since 1990.
Since the Fall of 2011 Theresa has taken over the ownership of the business and will continue along the same path of supplying quality products and services to all existing and future customers.
Theresa has spent the last 28 years working with her family to provide the best in service for her clients. Over the last 7 years, she has continued to offer that same dedicated service that her mother and father instilled in the business when it started back in 1982. She is a proud mother of 2 boys, and a sense of humor and positive "get'r done" attitude like no other!
