Extraordinary Associates of the Month July 2013 - Heather & Donna Sumner

They share the same DNA but not the same instrument! Heather would not play the bassoon despite Donna’s persistence, but what they can do the same is host one heck of a Closed Door Sale! The Ottumwa sales team of Donna and Heather - Team Sumner - made over 100 phone calls to make sure their Closed Door Sale was a huge success. If you build it, invite them, they will come. Ottumwa increased their attendance at the event by 43% this year. This store is (wo)manned by only Donna and Heather (shout out to honorary Team Sumner member Tammy Hartwig for helping that day run the register! Yeah Tammy!) You guys knew just what to do! They made sure everyone had what they needed and more, providing extraordinary service to the fine people of Ottumwa!

Way to go Team Sumner! Congratulations and thanks for all you do!
