|Couple of large changes in my life…
- Canadian Blind manufacturing Inc. closed its showroom, and I was put on furlough (furlough is an unpaid leave of absence. While furloughed employees still technically retain their jobs, the furlough itself means that they cease working for their employers and do not earn a salary. The idea is that this is a temporary arrangement, and workers will one day be able to return to their jobs) it has been now 5 months.
Most of you might not have known that I was assisting you with all your blind projects/quotes/orders all for no compensation. I was available to assist to keep orders flowing in for CBM, as I was a proud ambassador for CBM, over 13 years.
Then August 28, 2020 comes along, and a letter goes out to all accounts before a copy even came to me (stating I no longer represent CBM blinds). Now they have no reps in the territories at all.
- Textile Trimmings/Value Tex, same showroom closure, but I worked with compensation for that line. This will change as of 30 September 2020, as I will no longer represent these 2 companies in the field.
