Our people, at every location, showed their commitment to customer service over the past few days, and we’re very proud of them. Our customers know they can count on PLS no matter what.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 4, 2011
As the worst blizzard in decades slammed the Midwest on Tuesday, the PLS Check Cashers and PLS Loan Store locations in Chicagoland stayed open for business to see to the needs of their customers.
Thousands of area businesses closed down as more than 20 inches of snow fell and winds gusted at over 50 miles an hour. O’Hare and Midway Airports ceased operations and many area roads became impassable.
Yet team members at the PLS Check Cashers and PLS Loan Store locations in the Chicago area braved the elements to keep their stores open throughout the storm.
“PLS stands for ‘People, Location, Service,’” said Brian Johnson, Senior Vice President of Field Operations, PLS. “Our people, at every location, showed their commitment to customer service over the past few days, and we’re very proud of them. Our customers know they can count on PLS no matter what.”
