I’m sharing this late—about two weeks after it happened, but I
just have to give Wes a pat on the back—and you should too! He went above
and beyond to help me find the hazelnuts I needed for a recipe… he
searched through mixed nuts, picking out the hazelnuts, all because they
weren’t available by themselves anymore. Wow. So many employees would just
say, “Sorry, ma’m, no hazelnuts.” What customer service, and what a
dedicated employee.

I just wanted to say thank you and how appreciative I am to one of your employees, Gay Wheatley. Today as I was getting ready to leave Harter House on Eastgate, my car would not start. Mr. Wheatley not only helped me get the battery jumped, he offered to drive me and my girls home if we couldn’t get it started. Than…ks to him and a couple of helpful customers my car is now safely back home.
