I always had a passion and plan of one day opening up my own Home Décor and Gift Store in South Lyon and wanted my Mom to be a part of it. I had been working in the Automotive Industry for nearly 20 years with corporate management experience in various roles, including sales, marketing, business development, strategy and planning. When the economy went south in 2007 I decided I needed a career change and really wanted to spend more time with my family and friends. After researching opportunities I knew South Lyon needed a store where locals could shop for a gift for a friend, family member or their kids and also choose items to make their house feel like a home.
Grande Trunke Home has been a part of the South Lyon community now for 10+ years. I expanded the business 3 years ago moving to a beautiful historic building located at 101 N. Lafayette. I was able to add more Michigan products by local Artisans and provide a more spacious, and beautiful location to shop and find treasures within the many different vignettes.
The added space has also allowed me to hold all different events from School Fundraisers, Ladies Night Out, and Philanthropic causes. I love giving back to our community and meeting and developing relationships with my customers. They are the best!
My goal as business owner is to ensure that you as my customer will receive excellent customer service upon entering Grande Trunke Home and always find the items within Grande Trunke Home to be distinctive, stylish, and on the cutting edge of Home Interior fashions and gift giving.
I hope you enjoy your shopping experience at Grande Trunke Home and always welcome your feedback for improvement!
