Dellinger rejoins Spicer's

Gary Dellinger Gary Dellinger It was the 80s. The birth of video games, big hair and parachute pants. And for seven years, Gary Dellinger was helping customers with their new boats and snowmobiles at Spicer's Boat City.

It is now 2008. We are Internet dependent, the video games are handheld, and Gary Dellinger is once again helping customers at Spicer's Boat City.

Dellinger, a longtime Houghton Lake resident, recently returned to the Spicer's sales department for a summertime sales position.

"Gary was employed at Spicer's in the 1980s and met his long time wife Joyce here," says Phillip Spicer, owner of Spicer's Boat City. "He was a great salesperson back then and remains great at helping customers today."

After recently retiring, Dellinger approached Spicer's to keep himself busy in the summer.

"I have always loved this place," Dellinger said. "Their approach to everything they do here revolves around customer service. I myself have been a customer for many years. The products are a much better quality, but for the most part, we have the same product lines as we had in the 80s."

"He's a wonderful addition to the sales floor," says Bill Kerns, sales manager at Spicer's. "He brings great energy and customer service to a department that excels in both. I just wish we could keep him here all year."

You won't find Dellinger on the sales floor in December. He will be soaking up the sun in Florida.

"Remember, I'm retired," Dellinger said. "Well, part time anyway."

Dellinger can be reached at 366-8400.
