Christmas is the perfect time to sit down in a comfy chair and think about all the important aspects of life. God, family, friends, your career & goals for the next year. It’s also a great time to recap on the year that is coming to a close.
This past Saturday was our In The Bag retail Christmas party. It was a time for Dave to briefly highlight the year with a few challenges and achievements along the way. The party was for all of our retail employees at our 16 locations, drivers, managers and our Certified Restoration crew. Plus, everyone’s guest or guests! The party was held at Corporate Caterers – which was the perfect venue for our 80-some head count. The room was filled with smiles, laughter, delicious food & plenty of mingling. Our retail employees are very familiar with each other over the phone, but it’s a rare occasion that we all get together in person!
It wouldn’t be a party without giveaways, Jib Jab’s and disposable cameras. A few of the giveaways: gift cards to Best Buy, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Outback Steakhouse and Applebee’s, 3 crisp 100 dollar bills, Xbox, Christmas decorations and a 60” flat screen! Everyone had a spot in mind in their home for the 60” flat screen, but only one lucky winner would take it home!
Kayli is the new owner of the 60-inch television! She is our team member located at the 21st & Rock Rd. store. Congratulations, Kayli! Thank you for all of your hard work day-in and day-out!
I’m not sure if you have ever seen a Jib Jab, but you should definitely check them out! It is a crowd-pleaser and will bring a roar of laughter! We used faces of our employees and placed them on characters that dance & sing. They are absolutely hilarious & you need to check them out!
Each table had a disposable camera to capture the great moments of the evening – I can’t wait to get these pictures developed!
An important part of the Christmas party is to give recognition. “My team members work hard every day to provide the best customer service. The party is the perfect opportunity to acknowledge the achievements that occur on a very frequent basis,” stated Dave.
Without my team of highly qualified individuals we wouldn’t be voted Wichita’s Best Dry Cleaners! I am grateful to have a wonderful team & looking forward to a terrific 2012!
