Letters: Helpful and knowledgeable service deserves round of thanks

Editor: I would like to say thank you to some very special people.

When I go to stores and get good service — helpful and knowledgeable — I come back.

So I would like to say thank you to Crystal — meat department of Buy-Low Foods in Brookswood; Joanne — Shoppers Home Health Store in Langley; Marilyn — Willowbrook Sears cosmetics; Jean — Sears menswear; Ann — ladies wear and some other very helpful people there.

Also the ladies in Coles bookstore, Willowbrook mall; Mitzy, Lavina, Barrie and others — always friendly and nice.

I was in Home Depot lighting and had some very helpful people find me what I needed. I would also like to thank the young man who helped my husband on a cold November Sunday change a tire on our car. You had an Irish T-shirt.

People in retail get paid a low salary, but store owners, please remember good staff are worth their weight in gold.

I wish you an Irish blessing:

May the road rise to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back.

May the rain fall soft on your fields.

Until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand.


R. O’Connor,
