APRO’s In-Store Legislative Conference continues! Illinois State Representative Terri Bryant visited Rent One’s Mt. Vernon store on Monday, May 16th. Rent One’s Co-Owner, Larry Carrico and Employee Development, David Keen gave her a tour of Rent One’s store and recently remodeled Service Center. “Representative Bryant was excited to get a firsthand look at all that went on in the service center. She was amazed and unaware at the volume of repair service that flows in and out, shipping and receiving a full range of product from Tennessee, Missouri and Arkansas,” shared David Keen. Coincidentally, Representative Bryant had initiated a campaign to visit local businesses within her district when Larry approached her with an invitation. “Larry has been very aggressive as far as being hands-on. He first met Representative Bryant in her first term, in Springfield, IL, and has since always wanted to have her visit Rent One,” said Keen. “Larry has developed great personal relationships with representatives in southern Illinois and it’s great to have them in-store to see what we do firsthand.” Click here to join the effort and APRO will contact you outlining which members of Congress represent your stores, meeting ‘how-to’ details and to assist you with the meeting process to make it as easy as possible.
