This winter we’ve had quite a few snowy days, to say the least, and several official snow emergencies have been proclaimed. Friday, February 8th was one of those snow emergency days as the town braced for Blizzard Nemo.
Starting at noon that day, Banner Systems closed the office to adhere to the snow emergency and assure employees avoided dangerous road conditions. Dawn Sullivan, one of Banner’s sales reps, worked that afternoon from her home and received a call from a local customer. He was a bit panicked as he needed trash liners for the weekend and was completely out. “I felt just terrible and tried to figure out what to do,” remembers Sullivan. “As much as I didn’t want to call the owners because of the weather and the weekend, I knew we had to take care of this customer.”
She made the call and got through to one of Banner Systems’ owners and explained the trash liner situation. “He said he would be plowing the parking lot in the morning and would open up the building to let me get the needed bags,” she continues. “When I called him on Saturday morning to meet him at the office, he told me not to worry. He would deliver them himself.”
After plowing the foot or more of snow from the Banner System’s parking lot, the owner grabbed the needed liners, loaded them into his truck, and delivered them in person to our grateful customer.
It just goes to show that it is not just postal workers who deliver in rain, snow, sleet and hail … it is also Banner Systems!
