Allstate office holds ribbon-cutting ceremony
September 11, 2013 by James
Last Wednesday, September 5, the Allstate office on Commercial Street in Malden held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open the new location. No doubt the insurance agency has been using poster printing to make the residents and others aware of the new office in an effort to build business.
In attendance at the ceremony were Mayor Gary Christenson, Sharlene Wulleman, co-owner of the office with Paul Koltsios, and other agents from the office. At the ceremony, Wulleman explained the reasons behind why the current location was chosen. There were several that were looked at but this one was most outstanding due to the location of the parking, the traffic coming in from the adjacent strip mall, and convenient location close to public transportation.
The office is 1,600 square feet in size and has five employees, two of which are customer service agents and two of which are salespeople. It is the fifth Allstate office to be opened in Massachusetts
Wulleman is very optimistic for the business in Malden. She hopes that school, families, and people moving into the area will help the office to become recognized in the community and develop into a well-known name and brand in town. Currently, the office offers only automobile insurance, but next year it will be expanding to offer insurance to homeowners as well.
Excitement was felt in the office just after the ceremony, when a call was received from Dan Akroyd’s assistant about setting up a policy for his vehicle.
