The new center located at 1320 Helmo Ave North, in Oakdale, MN just opened on June 1st, 2011, and has been doing well. Pete plans on having an official grand opening in the very near future, which he hopes will bring in new customers from the area that might not know that there is now a Minuteman Press center in their town!
Minuteman Press owner Doug DiPasquale said that Lansdale had always appealed to him, both as a market and community. He is extremely excited to now be apart of the downtown renewal of Lansdale, and hopes his new location and center brings the downtown area more traffic; not only for his business, but the other surrounding businesses as well.
The drive was from 10am – 4 pm in the parking lot right next to our home office. Even though this drive was planned before the hurricane, it was perfect timing, as we know that there is a short supply of blood on the island and every donation counts. We hope to participate in more drives soon, and we want to thank Alcott HR for putting this event together!
Mitch, who is a member of the Syosset Woodbury Rotary club, received the award for his efforts over the past year. He has been selling used hard cover books in his store, and all proceeds go to the PolioPlus charity that was founded by Rotary International in 1985. The PolioPlus charity’s main goal is to fight the epidemic of polio that still exists in countries around the world, and help get children vaccinated who otherwise are unable to. The cause is close to Mitch’s heart as his mother had polio, and he could not think of a better way to help support a cause, and to keep his mothers memory alive.
They plan on using the new space, which is attached to the center, as a “Customer Area”, and keeping the old space the “Production Area”. Their goal is to give their clients/customers a great and creative atmosphere to come into. The reason for the expansion was just a natural one, the space that they currently were using had grown too small for them as they continue to expand their ever growing business, and it was just one of those steps necessary to keep growing.
