Lulu at Pizza Class!

Great Story From Providence, Rhode Island

Our Marketing Team Leader Shawna dropped off the cookie platter to the East Providence Police department and spoke with the dispatcher who has been on the force since the late 80's.  I thanked him and the police department on behalf of our team members for all they do to protect us.  He became a little choked up and started to tell me how their team of 15 were on standby and were willing and ready to go and "pay back" the support Massachusetts State Police had provided during a fallen police officer killing in 1991.  He also talked about the only time he could remember such a thorough search was when he was "riding" in LA in the late 80's and  police officer had been killed.  They did a door to door search then...the citizens were not as helpful and accommodating as they were this time in Boston. He also talked about how the son of a East Providence Police Officer works for the FBI and was on scene scouring all computer data and such.  He said there are still many unknowns that will take a long time to figure out.  It was a good visit and something so simple as a thank you seemed to make a HUGE difference.

Instagram Shots - TM Appreciation Week

Boise's wall of Appreciation!

Hi folks, among other events we have a “Wall of Appreciation” with a pocket for every TM in the store. TLs wrote an appreciation for every TM on their team, signed by them and all 3 people in store leadership. STLs wrote appreciations for all TLs and RS TMs. TMs are writing appreciations for each other like crazy and we’ve had to reprint more appreciation cards twice today! We also bought a basketball and hoop and set it up in the back. TMs get two attempts to shoot their best out of 10 free throws. Top 8 scoring TMs move on to a tournament and winner gets the ball and the hoop! GM rep Whitney in Specialty went 10 for 10!
