BUSINESS OF THE WEEK:
South Coast Saw and Garden
By Annette Langenstein, Staff Writer 

  Sheri Woolcock and Curt Coffman own South Coast Saw and Garden, located at 1120 South Broadway in Coos Bay. They purchased the business in October of 1981 and are open Monday to Friday 9 am - 6 pm, and Saturday 9 am - 4 pm.  “Our shop started out as the Saw Shop n 1965. It was located across from where Ace Hardware is now on Hwy. 101, but it burned down...now you just see pilings in its place.  I had been working there since 1973, and in 1981 Sheri and I bought it from the original owners, ” said Curt.

    Sheri explained, “This is  basically a retail sales company that deals mainly with Stihl products and accessories, and then we’ve also got Prison Blues clothing and accessories for loggers and the cutting industry. We service both commercial businesses and private individuals. We have commercial landscapers that we deal with...they seem to be increasing in our area. There’s also a lot of independent cutters and loggers that we do business with, or just somebody who wants to do work around their own home.”


Co-owners Sheri Woolcock and Curt Coffman are the owners of South Coast Saw and Garden in Coos Bay.

      I asked Sheri if her shop services other brands of equipment besides Stihl. “Because there is just Curt doing the mechanic work in the back, we normally service just Stihl products, makers of the number one chainsaw in the world. We stay very busy here in the spring and summer!”

    “We deal with many commercial loggers and cutters, so we focus on workers’ clothing. Prison Blues jeans are very heavy, wear really well, and are very nicely priced. It was something we added to our line about 20 years ago and it really took off and does very well for us,” said Sheri.

  I noticed that the shop carries a lot of safety equipment. “We have a line of inside and outside chaps, helmets, and eye and ear protection. The chaps are lined with Kevlar, and when the chainsaw hits it, it just fuzzes up and binds the saw to a halt...it’s amazing!” said Sheri.

    “Curt and I have been in the business for almost 35 years. This industry changes according to new regulations all the time. We’ve seen a considerable change in the last 10 to 15 years in the Stihl products, mostly as a result of EPA regulations. They’ve had to cut down on emissions while still trying to keep the product strong and light enough to do the job.”

    I asked Sheri how their Shopper ads were working for them. “Oh gosh, we’ve had Shopper ads in for longer than I can remember!  I would have to say these ads work really well for us, better than any other advertising we’ve used.”

    So if you’re looking for the best chain saws available today, stop in at South Coast Saw and Garden, or give them a call at 541-269-5805. Curt summed things up with “We’ve had customers that have been with us for 30 years, and we certainly appreciate that kind of loyalty! ”
