Letter from the President

Chief Operating Officer

VP of Operations

Plant Manager

Sales Manager – Wholesale Accounts

Sales Manager – Showroom and House Accounts

Business Administration Manager



It is because of the above listed ingredients that I am able to turn over the “day to day” operations of The Top Shop Inc. to Carole McSweeney and Michael Dean assisted by, Linda Coates, Sharon Garrod, Chris Guimond and David Stephens, key management personnel.

This will now give me TIME to look at new strategic methods of servicing our customers and research new products to manufacture and introduce to our customers.

I have also taken on the role of president of a non profit national association incorporated on August 26, 2010.  I will be dedicating some of my TIME and experience to the “Countertop Pro Team Association Comptoir Pro Team”. This association will bring the countertop industry to new levels in consumer awareness and coast to coast customer satisfaction with quality and installation.

Since the inception of The Top Shop Inc. on April 6th, 1985, it has always been my intention to treat each of our customers like family and ensure they get the best quality and service available. I am pleased to say that all the staff at The Top Shop Inc. shares the same commitment to our customers.

I am very confident that the TIME ingredients are part of each one of our managing staff and that our customers and suppliers will be in good hands!

David Dean

What are Customers saying?

We wanted to send the following email to you for the great help you and other members of The Top Shop have given to us. We were installing new kitchen cabinets for my sister. We visited granite suppliers in the immediate area of my sister’s house but did not get the “comfortable” feeling and attention to detail that we experienced when The Top Shop outfitted our personal kitchen a few years ago. As a result we returned to The Top Shop for help. From the time we entered the front door we felt comfortable. We were welcomed by the receptionist and escorted to the show room where the receptionist put us in direct touch with you. This was repeated on each visit that we made to your facility. You gave us the “personal” attention and consideration that we experienced previously. You helped us choose the granite slabs that would look best with the kitchen and decorative ideas that we had. Another comforting fact is that all of you in the show room work in unison so that if one is absent (day off) the other person picks up and covers. The gentleman in “the Quarry” moved many slabs for us to view and did so without any hesitation or complaints. He also added his comments when we asked for advice. Installation by your team was handled professionally and efficiently. We were contacted by phone about two hours prior to the installation team arrival noting that they were on their way and that they would be arriving within two hours. Upon arrival, one member come to the door, introduced himself and said that they were in the driveway getting the granite ready. The other members of the team came to the door, introduced themselves and laid protective coverings on the floor. During installation, the installation team each had a job to do and did it well. What was extremely nice to view was the application of the Silicone RTV. The installation team kept a lot of wipe towels available and always made sure the RTV tube was clean before setting it down. The granite counters were wiped clean and polished with cloths. All members were extremely polite and cordial with answers to questions from us and instruction to us for care of the granite. When they left, all was clean and there was no evidence of them having been there with the exception of the newly installed granite counter tops. They were extremely nice gentlemen to come into the house and were excellent representatives of The Top Shop. All we can say is , once again a job well done by The Top Shop team.
