Reprinted from: What's Cooking at W.L. May Co? Volume 1 Issue 4-Ginno's Kitchen & Appliance Center, founded by John and Claudia Ginno, opened their doors over a half century ago. They are a family owned and operated business, and known as the North State's largest independent appliance dealer, as well as a complete kitchen and bath design center. Their original store opened in Chico, CA, along the northeast edge of the Sacramento Valley, one of the richest agricultural areas in the world.
In keeping with the "family owned" business, David and Gordon Ginno, sons of John and Claudia, became business partners with their parents in 1980. Upon John's retirement in 1983, David and Gordon took full ownership of their company. Seeking to capitalize on an already successful and growing business, they opened the largest Kitchen Design Center north of Sacramento. They believe their success is based on, among other things, the "ideals that quality, service, and reliability, as well as dedication to their customers' needs and ultimate satisfaction, were foremost in their business." Members of Ginno's management team indicate they rely on W.L. May Co to resolve their difficult part researches and they enjoy doing business with a distributor that "responds, follows through, and does so with great attitudes".
In her spare time, Nadene, manager of the Loomis location, enjoys working outside in her garden, and spending quality time with her family. She dreams of one day traveling to New Zealand. Sandi, Chico's parts manager, can often be found outdoors participating in a vast array of different water sports. She too, loves spending time with family, and loves to cook; her specialty being pork loins. Both managers see to it that their stores live up to Ginno's motto: "The Ginno's Advantage: Offering the Best Service, Best Selection and the Best Price!" If you're ever in Chico, stop by and introduce yourself; see for yourself what makes Ginno's one of the best.
