After reading the article in your paper, Thursday, Nov. 12, about local businesses not returning phone calls, I find it hard to believe the response that Mr. Joe Murray has received from the business community.

I have been in the floor covering business for over 25 years here at the lake on the west side. We try to maintain our business in a professional manner.  We try to treat our customers the way we would want to be treated if we were the consumer, or we would not still be in business.
For a new resident of the lake area it is hard to ascertain where to buy products and services, one rule of thumb is to locate an old phone book (over 5 years old), if the company is still in business, chances are they are a professional company.
Quite frankly, we do not buy the term LAKE TIME.  We have a staff of 12 employees and we all have our duties to perform for our clients, no job is too big or no job is too small.
Mr. Murray if you find a company or a firm that has services and they do what they say they will do, and you like your service and/or product and treats you good, ask them for referrals, because quite frankly, birds of a feather flock together.
We have countless new clients that ask who do we recommend for (painting, plumbing, electrical, dock work & .....)? and we fell that will keep you from being at the mercy of unprofessional businesses.
