Porter's recognized by national magazine 'Hearth & Home'

(Riverton, Wyo.) – Porter’s Mountain View Supply is featured in this month’s Hearth & Homemagazine. The article, written by Bill Sendelback, tells the story of Lennie and Leo Kosirog and the history of Porters. “Our motto is ‘Service After the Sale,’” says Leo, Lennie’s 28-year-old son, vice president and co-owner in article. “We’re very much into pleasing our customers and taking care of our employees – and our vendors. It’s like following the Golden Rule.” Porters got started in 1978 with a 2,000 square-foot store, the article states, and now has a floor space of 12,000 square feet and a 25,000 square-foot warehouse. Additionally, the Porters expanded in 2004 to include a 12,000 square-foot store in Casper. “The success of Porter’s is amazing considering that Wyoming is home to so few people; fewer, in fact, than most major metro areas in North America,” the author wrote. “But as Leo explains, the whole state is ‘local,’ referring to the fact that people from all over Wyoming shop in Casper and to a lesser extent Riverton.” Their passion for the business shows through in the article, and despite the increased competition in Casper, the father and son team have plans to continue growing the business. “‘Do you remember the old song ‘Row, Row, Row Your Boat?’’” Lennie is quoted in the piece. “I really believe in that. It’s your boat, your store, and not anyone else’s. You put the key in the door every day. So if you row, row, row your boat – your store – gently down the stream, you’ll get there; you’ll be successful.” #oilcity #porters #sponsored
