Local business

Post  Moodyblues on December 6th 2015, 1:53 pm

I'm a local business owner. I don't have my benefits paid for by Uncle Sam, government agency, or large company. Lord knows the government and big business want to put us out of business. I try to buy everything local I can get. I own a Lexus LS-430 and just had our local glass company tint my windows at my business, some at my house, and of course my Lexus in a week. I'm frustrated that the passenger side door would not work as far as the lock and door handle. I told them about this and they say they were busy and it would be a few days, I understand that but they never called back. So this morning I pulled the door panel and found they had not even hooked it up, in addition he told me the actuator for the door was bad (it wasn't). Then I had too large windows on the storefront tinted because of the sun. One has bubbles in it and I was told give it a few days, well it's been two weeks and no follow up on their part. The aggravating thing is I know these people personally.


Rant over.

Call your local news station & tell them about him. He'll get off his ass then.. That's what they do here and shit gets done.

Sad they will be out of buissness and will wonder why. That is how I found Ted and Keith to do my engine. I just was not happy with the work I was getting local. I agree though I try to shop local first.

X2 I recommended Bob to my ex sister in law and he hooked her up with rave reviews. If the boss doesn't care, neither do the employees!

I agree, but if you have a group of people working for you that love what they do 90% of the time you will have just as good a job as if the owner had touched it there self.... have pride in what you do and others will too.
