|Garant's has been a family owned business in the Alpena area since 1984. Ron started his printing
career while in the Navy and later worked at 2 local print shops. In 1984 Ron and Darlene Garant
decided to buy Quality Press, a small print shop located in Hillman, MI They moved Garant's Quality
Press to downtown Hillman and added office supplies at that time. They later opened an office supply
store in Alpena, which Ron hired his brother, Bill, to manage. In 1988, they moved the print shop and the
office supplies stores into one building in downtown Alpena. In 1992, Ron and Darlene moved their
business to 117 W. Washington, since they outgrew their previous location. In 2000, they purchased 121
W. Washington to create their large office furniture showroom. Over the years, they have added many
services, including the commercial sign shop. Ron and Darlene are a great example of a local family
working together and taking a risk to live their dreams.
