Shark Shredding & Document Management Services, Inc.

“I wanted to pass along a “Thank You” to the staff at the chamber of commerce for a call we received at our office today.

An elderly gentleman from the Joliet area reached out to the Joliet chamber office needing to find help with some shredding services. The staff was kind enough to provide him with our company name and telephone number. As is our normal practice, when finishing up with his phone call, I asked him how he had learned of our company and he explained that he was given our name and number by the folks at the Joliet Chamber of Commerce.

As we all know, in today’s tight economy, there is never a customer too small that cannot be helped. I was truly pleased to learn that a simple phone call to the Joliet Chamber of Commerce will result in business for Shark Shredding, Inc.

Please pass along to your staff at the chamber a Thank You from me and our team here at Shark Shredding, Inc. that it wasn’t Google, Yellowbook, Dex, Bing or any other modern tech devise that led this client to our doorstep, just good old fashioned chamber members helping chamber members.

Thank you for the support of your membership!”
