Lakeside Insurance Services Ltd in Salmon Arm and McLeod Agencies Ltd. in Enderby have been purchased by Johnston Meier Insurance Agencies Group effective March 1.
Johnston Meier Insurance Agencies Group is a privately owned BC Insurance Brokerage that was established in 1973 and currently has 41 offices servicing over 250,000 customers throughout the Lower Mainland and the Interior of BC. They will continue to operate the two offices under the existing names with the same staff.
With this multiple-company representation, they bring a larger variety of insurance products and competitive pricing to the customers of Lakeside Insurance and McLeod Agencies. The former owners of Lakeside Insurance, Joan Sholinder and Winston Pain, would like to thank the customers, staff and community for the past support and patronage to both offices. Both feel the new ownership will continue to operate a community friendly business and are confident that both staff and customers will benefit.
