Stan Brouard was a carpenter prior to the second World War. He built his first wooden glasshouse at Clemrose in the Forest Parish in 1937 and grew tomatoes. He enlisted in the RAF during 1939 and saw active service until his return to Guernsey in 1946 when he built more glasshouses.
In 1950 he began a horticultural pest and disease control business in Guernsey. Later in 1962 he also commenced the same line of business in Jersey.
Many strings were added to the business from 1976 onwards and by 2003 when the crop spraying business ceased to operate the many varied areas of the Stan Brouard Group continued to be very successful.
One of the major areas is The Garden, Leisure & Furniture Store which provides Islanders with a wide variety of gardening equipment, indoor and outdoor furniture, as well as hots tubs, outdoor buildings and much more.
From humble beginnings in the late 1930’s the family of the founder of Stan Brouard and their valued ‘family’ of employees continue to operate the Stan Brouard Group as always with the main emphasis being on customer service and satisfaction.
