Great service shows why shopping at home is a win-win

Letter to the Editor


On Friday evening of Colorama weekend (and Mother’s Day) my mom’s refrigerator died. Luckily, she had her old one in the garage, but it was still concerning as we had eight adults and seven kids (7 and under) coming for the weekend. First thing Saturday morning, she called Loepp’s and they said they had lots to choose from. She went down before the parade, purchased a new frig and was told even though they didn’t have any deliveries scheduled for that day, they would bring it out a half hour after the parade was over. They were there at 12:30, removed the old one and set up the new one for her.

This would NEVER happen at a big box store without paying a substantial extra charge. It just reaffirms the rewards of supporting your local businesses. My parents bought many appliances and furniture over the last almost 70 years, all from Loepps. We got our first automatic washer and dryer, in 1949 after my brother was born, from them. When any major purchase comes up, please consider shopping at home. It’s a win-win for everyone.
