Closing Up Shop | Effective May 14
After 88 years and three generations of the Horak family at the helm of Northeaster Signs, we have made the decision to close our doors this year. First and foremost, I want to thank you, our loyal and dedicated clients, for such a great run. Business has been, and continues to be robust, and we have the good fortune to wind down by choice, not necessity.
I am extremely pleased to report that Harbour Sign and Graphics, LTD (yes, Harbour with a u!) will be taking over our accounts. Owner Richard Cegelski and I worked together here at Northeaster years ago, and in 1978 he opened his own very successful full service commercial sign shop. Richard and I have been friends for years and share the same business ethics and high regard for customer service. I couldn’t be more pleased to know that you will continue to receive the personal level of service that we at Northeaster have prided ourselves on over the years.
To ensure a smooth transition, Richard, Chelsea Aro (his daughter and Operations Manager) and I are available to meet with you for introductions. In addition, I will continue to work with Harbour and be available before, during and after as needed. Harbour is taking on Northeaster employees who are not opting for retirement, and they will also receive all artwork files, previous orders and any other company information which will aid in meeting any signage needs with little to no disruption.
Effective May 14, 2018 all phone calls and e-mails will be rerouted to Harbour, so I have included their contact information below. Any jobs straddling the transition date will be invoiced accordingly. Our beloved Donna Zimmerman will take care of all Northeaster jobs originating prior to the transition date. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly. I have the utmost faith in Richard, Chelsea and their team at Harbour, and thank you again for your loyalty.
