All Porter Locations Reopening June 15
2020 has been a year none of us will soon forget. We have all collectively navigated our way through a global pandemic, with COVID-19 making its presence felt in every market and in so many lives. Today, many of us find a world presenting a new challenge as we find ourselves in the midst of a civil rights event that is impacting many of us in varying and unique ways. For us, this signals that 2020 must have good things ahead…and after challenge, opportunity will follow.
As we at the Porter Family Companies continue to choose optimism as our preferred outlook, we will move to open our business homes back up as of June 15th, 2020. We will be bringing the majority of our teams back to the office and welcoming our customers and our vendor partners back in as well. In short, our three groups of stakeholders will all once again have the opportunity to connect, in person, within our business.
We have chosen to move towards opening because we are confident that we can do it safely. We have deployed significant safety and cleaning steps as we have remained open as an essential business, and we now know that we can operate safely and responsibly while still being in the presence of each other. Additionally, for those of you who would like to have our sales teams active in returning to safely visiting you and your teams, we are ready to do so safely and with your permission.
Each of our business home facilities will have unique safety guidelines to follow, and all will be practical and professionally applied. We will continue to ask that visiting groups not exceed 10 people at a time, and each of our facilities will be following the safety guidelines of both the CDC and the state in which they operate.
We are excited to move forward with our opening plan, and for those who are open to being in-person again, know that you are welcome in our business. We are proud to be here to serve you, remain committed to ensuring that we build genuine partnerships with you and continue to act as your family owned, family operated, world-class service provider in both tough times and in the better times coming.
May God bless you and we look forward to seeing you and serving you in the days ahead.
