Luxemburg Chamber of Commerce honors Jerry Simonar a real long time business owner

By Terry Kovarik


The Luxemburg Chamber of Commerce named Jerry Simonar its 2018 Person of the Year. You could say it’s an honor long in coming because Jerry Simonar is 87-years-old and you cannot talk about business in Luxemburg without mentioning the Simonar family.



Even approaching 90, Jerry Simonar still puts in eleven-hours daily at Simonar’s Shell, which is close to the other businesses he started and watches carefully. He started Simonar Sports, which sells ATV’s and snowmobiles, after a visit north of the border.



Jerry Simonar says he hasn’t really thought about retirement but will likely give it some more serious thought when he turns 100.
