Houston Businesses with Power Helping other Houston Businesses

Share Article

The Upper Hand Salon & Spa and qtags are loaning space, computers and personnel to The Platform Group Gallery, a Houston business without power.

The Platform Group Gallery is very grateful for the kindness and support of these other local Houston-based businesses. If you are a Houston-based business that has power and internet -- please consider offering space to other businesses. This is the Texans helping Texans attitude that Mayor Bill White is urging us to adopt. It will make all the difference in getting our city back up and running

Almost 2 million businesses and residences are without power in the greater Houston area due to Hurricane Ike -- but there are pockets with power restored. The Platform Group Gallery - headquartered in the heart of the Garden Oaks area, just North of downtown - is totally without power at their warehouse/office building.

But thanks to The Upper Hand Spa & Salon, the customer service team is up and running, using borrowed computers, internet and power from the Royal Oaks salon (the 11000 block of Westheimer near HEB). Also loaning space and computers to The Platform Group Gallery is a consultant for Houston-based qtags, llc, who is based in the Galleria area.

Thank you to The Upper Hand (salons in River Oaks and Royal Oaks) and qtags. The space, computers, power and internet will save our business. As soon as we get power restored, we will post it on our web-site and invite anyone who needs it to use our wi-fi.
