November Customer Service Award Winner
Congratulations to Tom and Isabel, from Trophy Kings who have won Customer Service of the Month Award for November. Tom and Isabel were nominated for their courteous manner, patience and outstanding service!
The happy customer who nominated Trophy Kings said, "The sign above their local business of many years displays the motto 'Where Every Customer Comes First' and this certainly was my experience. On entering the store their dog sounds the alarm that you have arrived and Isabel greets you with a most welcome smile. Despite my enquiry being for a very small job which involved several visits, her advice, guidance, courteous manner and patience was most impressive and appreciated. Although I did not deal with Tom directly he is the other half of this amazing team who have for so long provided our town with this outstanding service. What would we do without them!"
The Esperance Chamber of Commerce would also like to recognise;
