As young boys, John and Michael Gallagher the present owners of “Lambert’s Rainbow Fruit in Brockton grew up in West Roxbury in a large Irish Catholic family. They were the only two sons with six sisters. From the time they were old enough to work, they went to work for their friends, John and Anthony Lambert’s father, George Lambert, Sr. They worked at the first Lambert’s store on Morrissey Blvd. in Dorchester, MA. Since then, there have been several other Lambert’s open over the years, in different locations, owned by relatives of the original Lamberts owners.

George Sr. and Billy Lambert Sr. were great mentors. They taught John and Michael everything about the business. From choosing quality fruits and vegetables, and working with vendors to finding the best Christmas Trees, they taught them all they knew.
George, Sr. always said “If you give someone more than they expect, they will always come back.” John and Michael have always believed this and have adopted their own Mission Statement:
“To provide the best possible products and service to our customers at competitive prices.”
In 1988, there was a big fire at the Brockton Store. The fire closed the store, and there was a possibility that it was not going to re-open. The Lamberts owners offered John and Michael the opportunity to purchase the store, and use the name. Thus they became business owners. Even today, twenty one years later, they remain part of the Lambert ‘s Buying Group, which ensures continuation of quality products at the best prices.
As Working Managers of their business, John and Michael are in their stores every day, working the floor alongside their employees, the way they were taught you run your business. Say “Hello, to them when you see them".
