Scott and Lyzz Wahlberg met and married in college at UW-Superior in Wisconsin. They both come from small Wisconsin towns and enjoy the simple life. Scott enlisted in the Army as a Counter Intelligence Agent in 1992 and the family moved all over, eventually ending their military career in Augusta, Georgia. While in Georgia, Lyzz started working at The Home Depot part time. This would lead to a 16 year career with the company, taking them to Minneapolis, MN where Scott would join Home Depot as well, and then to Duluth, MN where they would stay for the next 13 years.
Thru Home Depot, Scott and Lyzz learned the difference between customer service and building a relationship with your customer, holding yourself accountable so that others will follow example and giving back to your community. Both "Wahlbergs" planned and organized team events over the years focusing on helping Veterans. Several home remodels took place resulting in long lasting friendships and lifetime memories!
Once the children were out of high-school, it was time to think about what was next....? After several years of planning and searching, it was decided that a retail business in Southern California was in order and so they came to find Canyon Feed & Tack. They packed up, said goodbye to family and friends and moved to California in October of 2013 bringing with them their daughter Meghan. Their daughter Taylor was serving in the Military and recently finished a deployment in Afghanistan, after which she came to California to spend some time with family and helping out by working in the store. Major, the family beagle, spends his days at work greeting customers or snoozing on his pillow.
Scott is a college football enthusiast and spends Saturdays watching Michigan play on the Big 10 Network. Lyzz rides a 2015 Ultra Limited Low Harley touring bike and enjoys exploring the back windy roads through the canyons. Major has decided that he can sleep anywhere whether it is at home on the couch or at work in the sunshine!
