Shelving Inc has participated in The Oakland Press Mother Of The Year contest since 2014. Each year, Oakland County residents are asked to nominate their mothers on Facebook and explain why they deserve a shelving makeover from us. The nomination that receives the most likes wins, and this year Linda Prosser of Waterford was the lucky winner!
When the contest first started, Linda’s daughter Brittany, who nominated her, said “She has the drive that you long for, the motivation to do anything she puts her mind to. She is the most thoughtful, caring, outspoken individual I know. Talk about an inspiration, especially to women.” And she’s right, Linda has run a day care out of her home for 21 years and has raised 5 children of her own.
Last week, The Shelving Store hosted I-Connect, an event to help local business owners in Madison Heights, MI meet, connect and exchange ideas.
Mike Schodowski, Shelving Inc’s Vice President of Sales, treated the attendees with Green Lantern Pizza, our favorite local pizzeria that happens to be from Madison Heights, too! Our Senior Project Manager, Sam M., took everyone on a tour of The Shelving Store. Here, she pointed out our most popular products and the variety of options we offer in shelving.
The shipping department at The Shelving Store plays an integral part to the success of the company. It is comprised of three talented individuals who work longs hours (always with a smile) to ensure you get your shelving on time.
In honor of #GivingTuesday, an event that encourages businesses to give back, we would like to celebrate our work with the Capuchin Soup Kitchen here in Detroit. Each year, Shelving Inc. (both TheShelvingStore.com and Shelving.com) donates 10% of our profits to help the Capuchins feed, clothe and encourage people in need.
One of our favorite vendors is Way Basics, an incredibly eco-friendly company that makes all of their products out of recycled paper! Not only is it great for the environment, but the end result is a durable, long-lasting and sturdy storage solution. Their storage cubes look great nearly anywhere and are an affordable option to get rid of clutter.
