Business Buzz: Loaf ‘N Jug in Craig gets facelift
The Loaf ‘N Jug on the west side of Craig is going through a complete remodel that’s expected to be complete by the end of this week.
“We kind of moved some things around, opened up the walls, got new floors, new bathrooms and new paint jobs,” said Cindy Jones, manager of the store.
Business continued to operate and doors have remained opened throughout the remodel, and the convenience store staff is excited about all the changes, including 20 new heads of fountain soda, a new ice machine and more option for customers.
This week, shelves are being moved back into the store along with restocking goods.
The hope is to have most everything done by Wednesday, Jones said.
’Tis the season to winterize just about everything
Fall’s arrival heralds in the season for sprinkler blowouts, furnace checkups and even getting boats and RVs winterized, according to a news release from the Better Business Bureau.
If you prefer to hand the task over to the experts, BBB serving Northern Colorado and Wyoming offers the following tips for finding a trustworthy business and/or contractor before you resort to calling just any phone number posted on a phone pole.
Find a reliable company. Ask friends, co-workers and relatives for recommendations of contractors or businesses they’ve used and then check them out at http://www.bbb.org to see how long they’ve been in business, if they’re BBB Accredited and if there have been any complaints or customer reviews.
Check references. Ask for references (especially if the job is more than just routine) and call them to find out if they were pleased with the work performed by the company (or companies) you’re considering and if they would hire the business again.
Never Pay Upfront. It might seem like a good idea to pay for the entire job upfront, but if you do, there’s no guarantee that the contractor will actually show up to do the job. Instead, wait till the job is completed and then pay by check or credit card, not cash.
Beware of door-to-door sales. Some businesses attempt to drum up business by knocking on doors. Don’t be pressured by sales pitches that require to sign on the dotted line right then and there or miss out on special savings. Legitimate companies will give you time to research your options.
Start with trust. For more consumer tips and information, visit http://www.bbb.org.
