Hi – my name is Rick Tribble. My son was diagnosed with Autism at an early age, and a lot of things changed for my wife Laura and I. To learn that your child will have to deal with disadvantages in life that may hinder their ability to take care of themselves even as an adult is quite a reality to have to consider. Typically, our job as parents is to raise our kids right, teach them to deal with adversity and prepare them to go out and tackle life on their own. Upon learning our son’s diagnosis, Laura and I’s job as parents became MUCH bigger than that. Now we also have to teach our son to deal with the nuances of being different. We have to teach him that God makes each and every one of us special and unique. We have to make sure that as he enters adulthood he will be well cared for. As parents we understand and embrace the fact that we are going to play a major role in his life not only through his teen years, but possibly well beyond.
With that in mind, I started a business that I hope will become a financial blessing that will play a role in both shaping our son’s adult life and helping with his care for years to come. SELLIGAN is that business. It was started from my desire to create a shopping experience unlike any of today’s “big box” stores. SELLIGAN is about real people with real expectations and budgets. We sell discounted items that we secure from some of the very same big box stores, but we wanted to be more than just a store. SELLIGAN is about community, giving people a place to bring their quality used items to “sell again” through our Flea Market, our eBay Listing Services, or our Auction. People from all walks of life frequent our SELLIGAN store and auctions – why? Because people today are more frugal with their finances. They spend more time looking for the best deal for every dollar they spend – knowing deals are there to be found if you look hard enough. SELLIGAN makes that search easy. SELLIGAN is also about family. Much of our staff is family and we intend for it to remain a family run business for generations to come. Our beginnings may be small compared to a lot of businesses, but our mission, and our values and goals are a big part of who we are and what we have to offer to our community. I invite you to visit the next time you are on the North side of Middlebury and see what SELLIGAN is all about. I promise that you will be surprised at the savings we have to offer!
NOTE: A portion of all profits at SELLIGAN go towards local charities related to Autism, Multiple Sclerosis, and the Care of Adults with Disabilities.
We take business seriously, but like to have fun too!
They tell me I'm too big for this one?
Even the customers sometimes get in on the fun!
