Lou Perrine Sr.
Perrine’s Gas and Groceries started in 1954 right here in Kenosha.
Our father and grandfather, Lou Sr., first opened a small full
service Clark station on the corner of 52nd street and Sheridan
road. It was back in the good ol’ days when someone pumped your gas,
checked your oil, and cleaned your windshield all at once. Lou Sr.
was known for his smiling face and great customer service.
Lou Jr., entered the business during high school. While working for
his father, Lou Jr. not only learned the business, but also met his
future wife, Laurie. Unfortunately, Lou Sr. became sick on Christmas
Eve in 1984.
