Zippo Service






HI MARTY,

GEORGE SWEENEY SEE PIC OF HIM, THAT STILL LIVES IN THE PARK, GOT A ZIPPO LIGHTER FROM THE LAPINIERE HOTEL OWNER GILLES LANDRIAULT ABOUT 50 YEARS AGO.SEE PIC YOU SEE THE NAME OF LAPINIERE HOTEL ENGRAVED ON THE LIGHTER. IT WAS NOT WORKING LATELY , HE SENT IT TO ZIPPO IN BRADFORD PENNSYLVANIA, THEY FIXED IT, EVEN CHANGED SOME PIECES, AND RETURNED IT TO GEORGE NO CHARGE. IMAGINE AFTER APPROX. 50 YEARS. HE HAD IT.

MARTY ZIPPO REALLY LIGHTS UP MY HEART. THE COMPANY WAS FOUNDED IN 1932 BY GEORGE BLAINDELL, MARTY THE REASON HE CALLED THE COMPANY ZIPPO, IS BECAUSE HE LIKED THE SOUND OF THE NAME ZIPPER, COULD NOT USE THAT NAME SO [[ ZIPPO ]]] WAS USED.

THANKS MARTY

NORMAND SIMARD

PS NEXT TIME YOU SEE A ZIPPO LIGHTER, SAY HELLO TO HIM FROM MY PART. MISTER ZIPPO YOU REALLY TOUCHED ME. THERE ARE STILL GREAT AMERICAN COMPANIES.

Thanks Normand
