It all began February 12 1979 when my dad, Bob Lewis got a job installing commercial garage doors for McKee Door of Grand Rapids. He continued working for McKee into the mid 1980’s as a dedicated employee but his desire to own his own business pushed him to leave McKee, hire a helper and begin sub contracting commercial garage door installs for various door companies in Grand Rapids.
Dad worked day and night for the next few years saving every penny, looking forward to the day he would have enough to start up his own “real” business. January 1st 1990 dad’s prayers were answered and he and my mom Deb opened Discount Door Company.
First operating out of our house in Rockford, MI and soon moving to a rented location on Rogue River Dr. in Belmont, MI. Business increased yearly and in the year 2000 we were officially out of space.The summer of 2001, construction of our current building was completed.
We moved in and still call 4780 West River Dr. our home.
Dad officially retired January 1, 2016, 26 years after opening the doors. At that time my wife Abby and I purchased dads Discount Door. We are going on 30 years strong!
I have worked here since high school in the late 1990’s and have learned from the best, my dad, on how to run a business successfully, how to treat people right and how to work really hard! I will continue to operate Discount Door like dad has for all these years, working just as hard to please our customers.
Thank you for your continued business
