Policy For Solicitation
If you walk up to many businesses, usually on their door is a “No Solicitors” sign on their door. Not at our office anymore. In fact, we boldly proclaim that “Solicitors Are Welcome!”
Solicitors used to be very annoying to us. They would walk in to our office and wander until they found someone to talk to about whatever product or service they were schlepping. The day we got a ping pong table in our entry is the day that all changed, as we instituted the official Policy for Solicitors.
