This Saturday, June 28th, we will continue our tradition of Customer Appreciation Day. Each Saturday, during the rental changeover, we set up a tent out in our parking lot, offering complimentary refreshments including water, soda and snacks for our customers.
We started this tradition about 5 years ago, and it consisted of one Saturday in the summer. We had the tent set up, music playing, and refreshments including hot dogs, soda/water, and snacks. Because it was such a success, the following year we decided to do this each Saturday of the summer. We kept up with serving refreshments and snacks, except the hot dogs, and of course it is all complimentary.
Saturday’s here on LBI are usually very busy. It is the traditional changeover day, when renters for the previous week check-out, and those renting for the upcoming week arrive. For those arriving, usually they are traveling at least 2 hours, if not more, to get down to LBI. As check-in does not begin until 2pm, many arrive early, hoping to avoid the notorious traffic headed south on the Garden State Parkway and on Route 72 heading over to the Island. Since many cannot go to their rental unit right away, and have been in the car for many hours in some cases, we thought it would be nice to offer some refreshments while they wait to check-in. We have everything set up early enough so that those leaving may also grab a snack or a drink before their long ride home.
This is just a small token our appreciation to our renters, for using us to help them with their summer vacation on Long Beach Island. It is our way of saying thank you. Of course we welcome anyone, whether they have rented with us or not, to stop by for a refreshment. Whether you are riding bikes, taking a walk, or on your way to the beach, anyone is welcome to come by and grab a complimentary snack and/or refreshment.
Look for the tent in our parking lot starting this Saturday, and continuing every Saturday until Labor Day. If you are in the area, feel free to stop by and grab a snack or drink.
See you this Summer!
