Spirit of Children, a philanthropic outreach of Spirit Halloween has received a generous donation from KC Store Fixtures. Shelley Gummig, Vice President of Business Development, presented the $15,000 check to benefit the children’s charity to Tim Viechec and Mark Wilson of Spirit Halloween on October 4th during their visit to Kansas City.
Founded in 2006, Spirit of Children helps make hospitals less scary for kids and their families by providing fun during Halloween and funding all year long to Child Life Departments within children’s hospitals.
This is the 4th year that KC Store Fixtures has supported the charity, with over $60,000 donated to date.
“Helping Spirit of Children is something that I am proud to do, they are able to help children in amazing ways.” said company owner Leo Galey. “100 percent of the money donated is used locally and we are pleased to give back to area Kansas City children’s hospitals.”
At KC Store Fixtures, it has always been our goal to find new and innovative ways to serve our customers. One of the ways we do that is with our Customer Call Center where our friendly and knowledgeable associates help customers place their orders by phone. And we are very proud of our recently redesigned website, where you can easily place an order any time- day or night.
But no matter how much technology advances or the times change, there will always be another way you can view our merchandise-by visiting our showroom in person and chatting with one of our sales associates. There is never a need to make an appointment!
We are very grateful for our local and walk in customers, and as a special thank you, we are hosting an event on June 1st from 9am- 2pm just for you! Please stop by and have a hot dog or hamburger, and enjoy a 10 percent discount on your order, Also, we will have some items tagged with EXTREME sale prices!
A few weeks ago, we mentioned on our Facebook page that Cole Lindbergh from I Got You a Song had stopped by to see us. Today we are excited to share with you the reason for that visit.
Cole has been working with us to create a video, and we are sharing it here for the first time today.The entire process was a lot of fun, and we are very excited about the end result. Please take a few moments to watch and then let us know your thoughts.
Today we would like to feature one of our associates, Dianna. She is one of our customer service representatives. Her main focus is internet orders.
Dianna has been with our company for 11 years and told us that one of the things she loves about working for KC Store Fixtures is the people she works with. She said that everyone is willing to help each other when the need arises, and everyone is very flexible, pitching in and helping. Dianna said she also enjoys when she is able to visit local customers and see our fixtures in use. She says it gives her some great ideas for non-traditional uses that she is then able to share with other customers. For example she shared how Hillcrest Thrift Store had made some slatwall panels free standing by constructing a frame, and then was able to display merchandise on both sides using both baskets and hooks.
Dianna noted that sometimes a challenge like a shipping issue arises. While initially that might seem out of our hands, Dianna said that it’s great to know that we always do our best and go the extra mile to take care of our customers.
Dianna loves interacting with our customers and has some that she has worked with for several years. She states that being polite, helping the customer know what to expect from their order- (including shipping times and tracking information), and getting any additional information from the customer that will help us with their order, are all things that make her successful in her position. Her previous work experiences taught her to be very patient when working through issues. She knows doing her best when helping a customer really lets them know they are valued.
According to Dianna, things at KC Store Fixtures just keep getting better and better and she appreciates how her fellow employees all work well together and do such a great job. We wholeheartedly agree with her and that makes our jobs a lot of fun.
Dianna thank you for the great job you do helping our customers!
