The Trusted Regina directory community  welcomes yet another amazing new partner to the Regina Directory of excellence in the Regina Auto and Recreational Vehicle category

Our Regina team works for YOU, the public and we work extremely hard to find the Trusted local businesses we feature on the Regina Directory.  We do all the running around and checking on those businesses so YOU don't have to,  the Trusted verification process is intense and we take our job very seriously. 

Let us tell you why Performance Marine is the latest Regina business to be 'Given the Thumbs Up' by the Trusted Regina Directory of Excellence and why we recommend them. 

Performance Marine is a Trusted Regina Boat & Marine Vehicle Dealer.

 




In 1997 Wayne Lorch founded Performance Marine in Regina, bringing Bayliner (the #1-selling leisure boat in the industry) to Saskatchewan, along with Chaparral luxury boats.  Performance Marine quickly became the dealership of choice by following one simple philosophy...  

At Performance Marine the customer is their #1 Priority. 

They believe that nothing is more important than customer satisfaction. 

This approach has earned them the approval from Trusted Regina and several great local and international awards, including:

The Paragon Award for Continued Excellence in Customer Service, 

The Torch Award for Ethics & Integrity 

THREE “Top” 100 Dealer Rankings in North America. 

Also, they have been finalists as Business of the Year with both the Regina Chamber of Commerce Paragon Awards and the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce ABEX Awards.


Performance Marine - A History Of Excellence

In January of 2018, three long term employees were given the opportunity to purchase the business.  James McIntosh, Murray Wilson and Jeff Adams.  Together their plan for the future of Performance Marine is SERVICE while maintaining their customer first philosophy. The dealership not only sells new & used boats it has a full mechanical shop with 4 factory trained mechanics. The only SGI accredited boat body shop in Saskatchewan, thousands of in-stock parts and accessories and they offer short term or long term storage.  Have you been into their showroom lately? It is packed with boats, accessories and happy friendly staff! 

Don't take it from us - read what their happy clients have to say! 


"The entire staff is amazing and friendly. Their annual boat show they put on is absolutely a site to see. Jeff the mechanic was fun to talk too and showed me a lot. I''ll definitely be going back there when my boat needs a tune up." JR Falzetta
" Glad to share my positive experiences here! Our family is in the market for a new family ski boat and have looked around at a few different places. We narrowed our choices down to a few different brands and paid a visit to each dealership. Hands-down our best experience was here... very friendly and knowledgeable staff who were willing to spend lots of time with us to find the right boat. Looking forward to picking up our new Chaparral " Brian Kelley
This year they are also offering dockside boat service for the first time.

Over the years Performance Marine has been able to maintain a knowable long term staff and an incredible customer base with lots of room to grow.   They are Saskatchewan’s only full-service marine facility, complete with a Capsizer 8000TM boat lifting/turning system, a full marine paint booth, and in-house propeller & skeg repair.

Trusted Regina welcomes it newest Trusted Partner Regina Battery Depot to the directory!

The Trusted Regina community are proud to welcome our newest Regina partner on the Trusted Regina directory Regina Battery Depot is your Trusted Regina battery store! 

You may know their sign but we want you to know how excellent it is inside this long-standing Regina battery business.

Regina Battery Depot is your Trusted Regina Battery Expert!  


You will find them listed under the Regina specialty retail category on the TrustedRegina directory or you can simply use our simple search tool and search ' BATTERY'. 

Why did we put them under specialty retail? Because they sell so much more than just Automotive batteries!

After four decades of energizing the rapidly evolving world of electronics, one thing has always stayed the same about the Regina Battery Depot: they are able to provide almost any type of battery a customer can imagine; from automotive to commercial, from hearing aids to digital cameras, from alkaline to rechargeable, they carry a battery for virtually anything. If they do not carry the battery, or they can’t rebuild it, they will do their best to source it for their customer. 

When putting them through the Trusted Regina verification process we quickly found out how great their service is. We personally telephone survey many of the applicant's past customers and in this case, every one of the people we spoke to gave them 10/10!!  

Here is what some of their customers had to say to our local team:

"Love these guys! Always have a battery for whatever I need - whether it is a remote starter for my vehicle or a watch battery.  They even take out the old battery, test it, then put in the new one. My place to go for all my battery needs." Pauline Relkey


"Their Customer Service is outstanding will be a customer for a long time" Gary Winslow.

Not sure 25+ people is enough? Check out their 80 Google reviews or the many others around the web...such as their customer below... 

"I went on what was probably the busiest day in years. -40 temps killed tons of batteries including my own. It was lined up right to the door 4 or 5 wide... it was like a black Friday sale at visions there was so many people. But I didn't have to wait too long and you can bet they had my battery" Marcus


The Regina Battery Depot has literally decades of helping the people of Regina and surrounding area!  Originally opened in March of 1971 in a small shop on Winnipeg Street. The business has remained on Winnipeg Street since then, but not always in the same location. In 1974 they moved down the block and in 1991, they moved again to their current location, right across the street.

The Trusted Regina team are very excited to announce our newest Trusted Regina partners The Bone & Biscuit Co.

Find an abundant selection of natural treats, homeopathic supplements, unique artisan baked goods, clothing and comprehensive range of “boutique” toys and general care items for everyday use. The food is all free of wheat, corn or soy.  Much of their product is Canadian – some even from here in Saskatchewan!

Owner Laur’Lei Silzer is an animal lover herself with three dogs and two cats, all of whom are rescues. 

As she say's 

"The only thing I love more than shoes (I have 151 pairs) is animals."

  After she retired early from the government she decided to embark on a new adventure and Bone & Biscuit was a natural fit.    

"I have never regretted my decision and I love coming to work every day. Everyone should have this much fun at their job!" 




Behind every great business stands an exceptional team.  Manager Stacie works with customers regarding nutrition and behavior. She has a diploma in Canine Nutrition and a Certificate in Nutrition and continues her studies in Canine Healthy Nutrition.  She is currently enrolled in a Raw Nutrition course and has two Diploma's in Canine Behavior Coaching and is working on a more intense course via the UK.   In addition, the support staff are also exceptionally knowledgeable and just love to help customers make decisions about what is right for their pet.

Their knowledge and willingness to help their customers really shows.  When calling to ensure they were indeed trustworthy as part of the unique Trusted Regina verification process the feedback from customers was exceptional.  Here is what some of their clients had to say.

“I am very particular about what I feed my cat.  Bone & Biscuit has everything I need.  Their staff is very knowledgeable and they have a great selection of products including some that no one else carries.  The prices are even better than I found online.”  - Courtney Debreceni
“The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and they have high quality products you can’t find anywhere else.  The really know their stuff.” – Steve John
“I have so many good things to say about Bone & Biscuit.  My dog had been on medicated food from the Vet since he was a puppy, he is now 15.  He no longer would eat any of the food from the vet and was very ill.  With a heavy heart I had even contemplated euthanasia.  Not wanting to give up I tried Bone & Biscuit and am happy to say that it has completely changed my pooch.  He is on the mend and eating very well again.  He is even able to jump up on his favorite spot by the window again because his arthritis has improved dramatically.  Whatever is in that food is just awesome and it isn’t very expensive!  I also love that they guarantee the food so if your dog doesn’t like it and you have the receipt you can return it and try something else.  They also deliver.  I love everything about them!” – Nancy Stoeber


We are confident that  Bone & Biscuit are a great addition to the Trusted Regina directory of excellence and happily welcome them aboard.
