CLASSIC DISPLAYS, RIGHT FOR YOU
Classic Displays started as a small operation in 1977 out of a garage in Mississauga, Ontario and in the last 40 years has grown to become the multidivisional company you know and trust.
Started when owner Wayne Tucker began producing Christmas/Holiday decorations with his father as a part time job, Classic Displays quickly grew and built up a loyal customer base as it earned the reputation as an up and coming business in the outdoor enhancement field.
Wanting to become a less one dimensional business, and be able to serve their customers on a year round basis, it was time to expand, thus the Flags and Banners division of Classic Displays was introduced in 1985.
Despite the introduction of the new division, Classic Displays’ clients still had a number of needs that the company could not meet and they wanted to do more, so in 1990 the Site Furniture division was added. Initially manufacturing the majority of the site furnishings in steel and wood, Classic Displays recognized that recycled plastic was a better material to use as it was longer lasting and more environmentally friendly. Now Classic Displays takes pride in the fact that they are a Canadian leader in furniture manufactured from recycled plastic lumber.
Now including Wayne’s sons Adam and Chris, Classic Displays continues to grow and produce quality products the customer can depend on. Classic Displays has been right for you for 40 years and will continue to do so for years to come.

As a condo board member and avid cyclist, I was tasked with purchasing bike racks for our underground parking. Over the years I have been surprised by the number of poorly designed multi bike racks on the market. The most common flaws in design are that not all bikes fit or stay upright, but most importantly don’t allow a bike frame to be locked to the rack with a standard bike lock. I became familiar with a unique design from Classic Displays which is seen in public spaces throughout Toronto and elsewhere. It is the ultimate multi bike rack as it addresses all of the flaws seen in other racks making it no surprise that it is so popular.Having contacted other companies over the past year, I was aware that costs could be prohibitive. Either the rack itself could be beyond our budget or the delivery charge would be excessive. Having now decided on the perfect rack, it was with trepidation that I reached out to CD to inquire about availability and pricing. To my delight the racks were in stock and the price, including delivery and installation was extremely reasonable.David at CD made the process easy and looked after all of the necessary arrangements. Our racks are now full and we are delighted with the convenience they provide for our residents. I highly recommend Classic Displays for their uniquely designed and high quality bike rack, competitive pricing and exceptional customer service.

The experience our property had with Classic Displays was top notch. Everything Chris did to streamline our installation to happen before their busy holiday season was a huge plus. Salem and his on site team were the icing on the cake, very professional and efficient. He was in constant communication while on property to try and minimize the disruption to our guests. Our display looks amazing and we would highly recommend Classic Displays

I worked with Ryan Demchuk to purchase a community bench. He was a fantastic fellow to deal with. He got back to my many questions quickly and provided lots of guidance. He was honest about supply issues and didn’t make promises which couldn’t be kept. When the bench was delivered it was a quality product and we are very pleased with it.

Everyone loved the bench – they couldn’t believe how beautiful it was and well built. Some couldn’t believe the length of it.Our donor, Concetta Di Piazza was thrilled with how it all came out, especially the plaque and that we had spelled her name correctly. lol! That would have been very embarrassing indeed.The Platinum Jubilee Crest on the legs is the piece da resistance!You and your staff have been outstanding in your professionalism, cooperation, patience, efficiency and friendliness. I could not have worked with a better company to assist with a project like this. I am hopeful that at some point in the future we will have another donor that can help us to place other furniture on our grounds. (If we really had money I would love some nice outdoor Christmas lights! – Now I’m really dreaming!).Personally, I couldn’t have been happier dealing with David and the team at Classic Displays and wouldn’t hesitate for a moment to use their services again or to refer them to anyone else looking for durable and aesthetically pleasing outdoor furniture..To you and your staff my sincerest and heartfelt thanks for all you have done over the past few months for St. Mary Magdalene Church.May God bless each of you at work and in your daily lives. Continued Success!

Wonderful to work with and lots of imaginative input from the team. Residents of the town were totally astonished at the Wow factor! The photo with the trees is the real thing….the others are the mock ups provided…and were very close to the final product. Comments on Facebook included ‘…..I heard gasps coming from the back seat of the car when my kids first saw the display! Incredible…’. Check out the December issue of The Baden Outlook for great photos of the entire setup!

Our church recently purchased 2 Riverside Pride Benches from Classic Displays. We have the benches at our front entrance and already they are constantly in use. Inspired by the Zimbabwe “Friendship Benches”, these benches are part of our commitment to create inclusive spaces that welcome all people in our community. Our experience with Classic Displays was outstanding! Every step of the way David MacFarlane offered friendly expertise and customer service that went above and beyond. David was prompt with his communication and was always available for questions and advice. We are absolutely thrilled with the benches and how they have brought our communities together. Thank you David and everyone from Classic Displays! I have no doubt we will be calling Classic Displays for future projects!

I recently purchased a Riverside Pride Bench from Classic Displays in memory of my mother. i was extremely pleased with every part of the process. My initial contact with David MacFarlane was great. He is very knowledgeable about the companies products, and was able to give me advice regarding the best choice of bench for us. He gave us an accurate time line for the bench to be made, and communicated what was going on during the process. He replied to questions promptly either by telephone or email. The finished product is beautiful and looks amazing outside of our church.

We used Classic Displays for an event we were having in the Oakville Towne Square. They were exceptionally helpful in working within our dates, setting up on schedule and taking down. The Team did a great job and our event was exceptionally successful with the use of one of their displays. Thank you for your support. Zonta Oakville

From the beginning of the process of choosing the proper memorial bench, to dealing with the staff at Classic Displays, the follow up we received during production and shipping, the experience was fantastic. The delivery order was followed exactly as we had requested and the driver was super nice and supportive when it came to placing the pallet where we wanted it. Our staff had a very easy time putting the bench together and we can’t wait for the ground to thaw out so we can place this memorial bench to be used by so many of our residents. Thanks Dave and your staff for a great job! Brent laBrosse, Bridges Community Living, Red Deer, AB

I am from a Condominium Corporation in Mississauga and I ordered 2 benches to install in our tennis courts. Right from the start the sales staff, Stella was great. She gave me all the information, and pricing and everything went smoothly. The benches were ordered and were delivered very quickly. The delivery and installation went very smoothly as well. The staff members from Classic Displays, Nigel and Tim were amazing. They delivered the benches and installed them today. They were very knowledgeable and courteous and extremely efficient. They took special care when installing our benches on our tennis court flooring, and after completion we were very happy and satisfied with a very good job done. I am looking forward to working with Classic Displays again in the future.Thank you Stella.

For those who think the days of exceptionally high quality service and customer care are gone, I give you Chris Tucker and the team of Classic Displays as exhibit A that it still exists. I have had the upmost pleasure to work with Classic Displays for seven years now and found them to be one of the most supportive and easy to reach companies I have ever worked with. Chris and his highly talented and expert team always pick up the phone and promptly give you what you need. Advice, quotes and everything in between. I feel I have a friend on the other line who truly cares about my business and needs. As the Executive Director of Peterborough’s DBIA I can without question recommend Classic Displays for your decorative lighting needs. Fair, reachable and knowledgeable are the standards with this company. Quick, quality and flexible are the bonus features Classic Displays provides. What a great thing to have companies you can trust these days like Classic Displays and with Chris at the helm always striving to find ways to save you money, time and headaches while he meets your needs is yet another reason I choose this company for my lighting needs.

Beautiful Christmas decor and a variety of industrial items such as the bike rack that I purchased. My contact was with the front office and David. Both were warm and professional. It wasn’t a surprise to find out that the company is owned and run by an extended group of family members. I’m sure they will take good care of you too.

Even though our first time doing business with classic displays was not a larger order Adam Tucker and his team took a personal interest in all aspects of our requests. The exceptional service and advise that Adam and Steve Midolo offered from the initial contact of the order was very helpful to us.Both Adam and Steven were in regular contact and kept us informed of the progress of the order and saw to it that things were completed on time. The final touch from Brett who delivered the order and helped us get the products set up was the “icing on the cake”. He was very friendly and went out of his way to see that we were completely happy with the set up.It was a pleasure doing business with a company that takes pride in their work and fully understands and cares about the needs of their client.We look forward to continuing doing business with Classic Display. They made us feel like we were part of the familyJeff Budd PresidentSingle Source supplies

I can’t say enough about David McFarlane and the staff at Classic Displays.I am a member of a group of four women they call the Golden Girls of Port Perry.We wanted to help the town to address their commitment to supporting their communication of a welcoming and inclusive community. So we offered to donate a PRIDE rainbow bench. But we could not find a supplier until we were referred to Classic Displays. David and the staff went out of their way to design, paint and provide their first ever bench of this type. The bench was unveiled today to a large community group. The event was covered by television and newspaper media and we made sure that everyone knew how Classic Design made us, with our small project, feel like we we their number one priority. If ratings could be ten stars, we would give Classic Displays a ten! Martha Casson Port Perry

Classic Displays has been our “go to” place for all our commercial outdoor furniture needs. Customer service and ordering is super easy and the staff are very helpful with guiding you through your product selection. We have purchased a number of different products over the years and we find the furniture to be of super high quality. We have many of their park benches and we recently purchased fully accessible picnic tables. Everything is standing up well to wear, tear and the outdoor environment.Ted – Grey Roots Museum and Archives

For our condo we wanted benches and planter that would look the best and last. We visited Classic Displays and were able to see and feel the product. This proved a worthwhile endeavor and one cannot quantitative quality when searching on line. Their Heritage benches were ideal for us as we needed free standing. The 200 pound weight solved this problem. The design is ideal for our senior residents with sitting comfort and easy egress. Ryan was welcoming, informative and patient to review all the possibilities we thought would work in our prior web review. As a board president, I highly recommend to any condo board to visit Classic Displays as a place to purchase benches, tables, and various accessories. Quality Canadian manufacturing allows choice of various colour combinations. Best of all, they deliver and install. All we have to do is sit and enjoy.Harold Duerhammer – The Freemont Rosedale Villages Brampton
