It was Customer Appreciation Day yesterday for members of the Six Roads, St. Philip branch of the Barbados Public Workers’ Co-operative Credit Union.
As members of the credit union trickled into the Emerald City Complex, they were greeted with sweet steel pan music and the smiling faces of staff members of the Barbados Public Workers’ Co-operative Credit Union.
Those transacting business on the inside received a number of giveaways, inclusive of pens and bags emblazoned with the credit union’s logo, whilst on the outside, members of the Barbados Kidney Association sat at their booth waiting to offer various health checks to customers – including blood pressure checks and blood sugar testing. Customers were also treated to head, neck, shoulder and back massages by a team from Soothing Touch Da Spa.
Branch Operations Officer Elizabeth King spoke with The Barbados Advocate about the special day.
“Today is our Customer Appreciation Day. We wanted to show the members how much we appreciate them for doing business with us, so we decided to honour them by having this day and having treats for them and games and things like that,” she indicated.
“We do this on an annual basis, on the 22nd of July. So we have the massage parlour set up on the outside and the Kidney Association is also here to check for diabetes, check your pressure etc.,” she stated.
“We started at 7:30 a.m. this morning and whoever did a transaction in the kiosk in the supermarket, was given a complimentary cup of coffee as well. Then the main branch here opened at 10:00 a.m. and we now have the other activities over here,” King further noted.
Customers who took up the opportunity to have massages carried out by the Soothing Touch Da Spa team made up of Jaleesa Farnum and Danielle Blackman, indicated that it was a nice initiative introduced to the Customer Appreciation Day and an incredibly relaxing feeling coming to the mobile massage parlour to get a free massage, a gesture they all said they appreciated in these stressful times.
