Power Zone was founded in 1997 with the acquisition of Danny’s Repair Shop in Pembroke, VA. Danny’s Repair Shop started in an 11 x 11 shed with Danny St. Clair turning wrenches and running the cash drawer out of his pocket. Jim Higham met Danny in 1990 when he started buying parts and equipment from the repair shop for the lawn maintenance company he ran with a college friend. Six years after that meeting Danny said, “You need to buy this place or I am closing the gate and going to Florida for good.” So Jim joined forces with two of Danny’s employees, Duke Lucas and Peter Clouse, and officially formed The Power Zone, Inc. on Jan 1, 1997.
They operated ten years at the original Pembroke, VA location, when a merger with All Seasons Lawn and Garden prompted a move to Christiansburg, VA. All Seasons was owned by Glenwood and Donna Martin who had purchased Sower's Machinery Co., Inc. in 1978. Sower's Machinery Co., Inc. was originally founded in 1950 by J.C. Sowers.
Power Zone operated out of the former All Seasons location under the name Power Zone – All Seasons for seven years before finding a new five acre home at 2700 Roanoke Street in Christiansburg, VA in 2014. The property was formerly a Harley Davidson dealership and will better serve the growing needs of Power Zone and its broad customer base for years to come.
