Welcome to Glacier Glass - Regina’s Largest Independent Glass Shop
(open Mon-Fri 8:00-5:00PM)
This year, Glacier Glass will be celebrating its 30th anniversary. It's a big milestone when you consider the company began as a literal Mom-and Pop shop in 1979. Peter and Linda Halbgewachs started the operation out of their home and then moved to a small store location. Gradually, the company took over new space to accommodate their growth and success, adding trucks and crews along the way. Today, Glacier Glass is Regina's biggest independent glass retailer.
It's very much a family business,” smiles Jamie Halbgewachs, Vice President and General Manager, as well as Peter and Linda's son. “My dad has two brothers that still work here and both of my brother-in-law are here, too. Of course, there are other employees who have been here for a long time, who are like family. We have grown from two people to about 55 people over the years.”
Jamie has been at Glacier for 20 years. When asked about what is like to work with family, he admits it can be tough at times, but it's worth it. “I think we have done a good job managing the family aspect,” Jamie says. “My dad and I have always worked well together-we are good partners. We respect each other and have essentially grown the business together."
