Our history dates back to 1952 when Jim Smithson began a part time back yard business known as The Duxbury Fix-It Shop. In keeping with the neighborhood Mr. Fix-It, Jim fixed everything from bicycles to vacuum cleaners. Route 53 was a quiet road leading to Cape Cod. Jim and his wife Mary operated Duxbury Fix-It Shop through the years growing in size and functionality. By 1957 with the increase in popularity of outdoor power equipment, the business converted from part time, seasonal, to full time, year round. Jim and Mary retired in 1973 and the business was taken over by their daughter and son-in-law, Arlene & Joe Raftery, who ran the business until 1981. Fred Simmons assumed ownership in 1981 and Fred’s Duxbury Fix-It Shop, Inc. was born. It could be said that Fred grew up at Duxbury Fix-It Shop, starting here in 1970 as a part time floor sweeper while still in school. Fred's apprenticeship began under the tutelage of Jim Smithson and continued under Joe Raftery. Fred Simmons knows the power equipment business from the ground up.
The neighborhood has changed over the decades; Route 53 is no longer a quiet little road but rather a major thoroughfare. The fields and farms are mostly a memory.
