Meet Linda Goetzinger & John Goetzinger

Linda Goetzinger & John Goetzinger is the owner of A.M.S. Building Centre

In a small community like Queen Charlotte, says Linda Goetzinger, “we all know one another on some level.” In fact, many of A.M.S. Building Centre’s customers have been coming into the store for years. “We develop relationships that last through generations. People come to trust the advice that we give and depend on us. When customers come to the store, it’s like having friends come to visit.” This familiarity breeds an environment that encourages and enables people to work together toward common goals for the sake of the community at large. This willingness to work together contributes to a higher quality of life that’s like the icing on the cake in a place that is already so beautiful and rife with natural resources and recreational opportunities.

John and Linda’s children have all worked in the business at one time or another, and the Goetzingers are grateful to have been able to provide this opportunity to their family. In the early years of family life, Linda notes, having their own business allowed for flexibility so that the couple could be available for important times in their children’s lives. As the family grew up, “being an entrepreneur allowed me to expand in areas according to each one of our talents. We are now hiring the third generation,” says Linda.

Haida Gwaii has been a wonderful place to raise their family, and John and Linda are deeply appreciative of the life they’ve been able to have here. The Goetzingers are a close-knit family, in and outside of the business. They enjoy spending time together and being outdoors when they’re not working.
