Gardner Stone, owner of both G. Stone Commercial and Dealership divisions, began his business in 1974. After he and his wife took out a second mortgage on their house, he borrowed every dime he could to purchase a small garage on Route 7 South in Middlebury, Vermont. At first, his inventory consisted of only four vehicles, but his elbow grease and ongoing determination helped the business to quickly grow and evolve. Countless dedicated hours to the business allowed Gardner to move his operation to its third and current location on Route 7 in Middlebury as a Ford and GMC franchise. G. Stone Motors offers a wide variety of new and used cars and trucks, and like G. Stone Commercial, will take anything in trade. Today, the dealership is run by Gardner, his son Todd, and Todd’s son, Justin.
In the early 2000’s, Gardner wanted to offer something new to his clients, and thus the G. Stone Commercial Division was born. Today, Gardner, and his daughter, Darcy, run the G. Stone Commercial Division.
