ANTON SCHOUTEN

     In loving memory.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Born and raised in Amsterdam, Anton immigrated to Canada in 1984 with a desire to start his own business. He owned various businesses in Saskatoon and started Prairie Laser in 2005. Over the years he kept family involved in his business as family was very important to him. Prairie Laser grew into the company it is today because of his dedication to customer service, great prices, his friendly face and outgoing personality. Many great memories were made with customers as they talked about soccer, travel and family with Anton at the store. He is missed by many.

CLAIRE ERNEWEIN-SCHOUTEN

Claire grew up on the farm in north west Saskatchewan. She became a teacher and school principal and had a 25 year career in education in northern Saskatchewan. Through this experience Claire became an expert at adapting and learning. The learning continued when she decided to take over the business when Anton passed in 2019. Claire understands how important it is to contribute to and build up local businesses. She has continued to treat customers like friends and neighbours, sharing stories about children and grandchildren, gardening and sports. It is very important to her that customers at Prairie Laser are greeted by friendly helpful staff and that they always leave with a smile.

SUSAN DEAN

Susan grew up in rural Saskatchewan. She became a truck driver and has put on more than a million miles in Canada and the US. Once her son Casey was born she left the road behind to be with him. At that time Prairie Laser had a store in Regina and worked there until it closed. She moved back to Saskatoon in the spring of 2018. Susan was called in when Anton was sick and the family needed to be by his side. She had Prairie Laser experience and has been a valued member of our team since! She is bubbly and passionate about helping families, businesses and organizations find the best solution for their printing needs as well as knowing how important savings and great customer service is!
