Welcome To Copresco's
The Spirit of the
I telephoned the president of one of my competitors in
October. While waiting for him to take my call, I listened to his hold music.
Silent Night. Wait a minute! The Great Pumpkin hadnt even come yet, and
he was playing Christmas Carols!
Im just doing what the
stores down here do, laughed Ray Kontof of
Service in the Chicagos South Loop. Christmas season is in
full swing in the drugstore across the street.
After our first
snow here in Northern Illinois on Thanksgiving week, Ive been finally
able to get into the spirit of the season myself. This holiday period between
Thanksgiving, when we count our past and present blessings, and New
Years, when we plan for our future prosperity, is the ideal time to pause
and reflect. This is true whether you are celebrating Christmas, Hanukah,
Kwanzaa, or wrapping up Ramadan.
This year, here are my thoughts for
the holiday season.
- Our customers are king Sounds like a hackneyed
old cliché, but what is a cliché other than a truism that has
withstood the test of time? Im happy to say that you folks are a delight
to work with. On behalf of Coprescos entire staff, I thank all our
customers for being so great. You make it worthwhile for
Copresco to go the extra mile for
- Our vendors are the same Thanks to all our
suppliers, without whom Copresco could not maintain our top level of service.
We appreciate your adopting Coprescos philosophy of customer service over
all. And thanks to Community Bank for supplying an especially
important raw material.
- Thanks to Santa Claus for helping me to
understand the true meaning of Christmas. Santa isnt a poster in a store.
He is the spirit of St Nicholas, who showed by example long ago that the real
joy of the season is in giving of ones self, and that the need to give
(and joy of giving) is a season that never ends.
And thanks to
Virginia that stalwart denizen of
Coprescos holiday website, whose childlike inquiry from 1897 still helps
us to put the season in the proper perspective.
Merry Christmas. And we look forward to working
with you in 2004.
Steve Johnson, President
