In these uncertain times, we all need to pull together and support each other. Chris Rocker, founder of Just Shutters, felt strongly that we needed to support our local communities. We are offering a Community 'Shop and Drop' service to our customers who may be of more senior years or stuck at home for any reason, unable to get out and need vital supplies bringing to them.
In essence, Just Shutters has vans, people and time to be able to help. Naturally, there is no cost for this service; our only cost is a minimal amount of petrol, and we all feel this is the right thing to do.
So far, we're able to offer this service in the following areas, and we hope to extend this: Dorset, Hertfordshire, Sussex and Birmingham. In essence it is a click and collect service, though we appreciate that won’t work for everyone so we ask that people call us and we’ll try our absolute best to help them however we can.
Our team are committed to this project and are taking every precaution to look after themselves while helping others. We are following and exceeding all government best practice advice for our staff and giving our local teams clear guidelines on best safety practices.
Dorset was the first to launch and we're very proud of Ivan, Just Shutters fitter, for completing our first shop and drop w/c 23.03.20. We've been overwhelmed by a flood of warm messages of support and offers of assistance we've received locally. Stay in, keep safe and be well.
Hayley and Terry Lancaster embarked upon running the Just Shutters Essex franchise because Terry had reached the ‘glass ceiling’ in his career and the couple wanted to build something for their own future.
On track to blast their overall targets, Hayley and Terry have shown huge commitment to their franchise and are reaping the rewards. Here they discuss their motivations and successes as Just Shutters franchisees.
They say: ‘Overall we got a very good feeling about the people, how they looked after their own. We liked the brand and knew if we liked it, we can sell it. The training was first class. The office support, the fact the customers call and the phone gets answered, the brochures get sent out takes the pressure off us. Our experience has been overwhelmingly positive. The support we get is overwhelming. Would I recommend a Just Shutters franchise? Yes – that’s it, there’s nothing else to say.’
