I have been seeing references to Small Business Saturday posted on social media about shopping and interacting with local businesses and other establishments, and thought I would mention some of my recent experiences that have not been too positive.
Inquired of a local blind company about purchasing new blinds for the fellowship hall at our church. Never received a return phone call.
Inquired of a representative of a local bank about moving funds from a large international bank to their bank. Never received a response.
Inquired of a local adult tutoring establishment about helping, after attending two of their fund-raisers and an open house. Never received a return phone call.
Businesses must be thriving in Modesto.
