More local RVC companies back in business after Sandy devastation
February 10, 2013 by Mark
With nearly four months passed since Superstorm Sandy ripped through the region, Rockville Centre is really starting to get back on its feet, with many local businesses now fully open.
Throughout the area and all across Nassau County, local stores, eateries, and private companies were forced to pull the down shutters. Such was the damage caused in some areas, many thought it unlikely they would reopen any time soon.
Over 15 weeks later though, printing companies in the area have been helping show this is not the case.
Through banner printing and poster printing and all manner of other services, it is clear that RVC is back in business. Just a couple of weeks ago, this was certainly highlighted as Wells Fargo’s Oceanside store reopened following its own completion of repairs.
The Long Beach Road store will be much welcomed by local folks. However, the financial giant’s regional president for New York and Connecticut did have this to say at the reopening to praise the town’s patience:
“We thank our customers for visiting surrounding stores and using our online, ATM and 24-hour customer service capabilities while we worked to remediate Sandy’s impact on these stores.”
The plight of Wells Fargo was indicative of how badly affected the Northeastern seaboard was in the hurricane. More than 750 stores were closed because of the damage sustained, seven of which are still undergoing repairs and remain closed for the foreseeable future.
With the sentiment and help that RVC residents have provided over the weeks though, it is likely that everyone will soon be up and running once again.
