World Wide Stereo celebrates grand reopening after major renovation
The folks at World Wide Stereo sure do know how to throw a party. Spurred on by the grand re-opening of their 37-year-old signature store in Montgomeryville, PA, after a massive renovation, owner Bob Cole decided to celebrate the occasion last week in a way that only he and his staff could.
As a show of gratitude for all of the work they did throughout the process, World Wide Stereo invited every single person who played a role in the renovation—including carpenters, plumbers, electricians, laborers, neighbors, special customers, and every contractor including the GC, and Ernst Brothers—and they all showed up.
The store was packed, and the event was highlighted by a special appearance made by local celebrity and Philadelphia boxing legend and former World Champion Bernard Hopkins. B-Hop, Cole said in an email to Dealerscope, is a faithful World Wide Stereo customer.
“All these guys who worked on the remodel gave us their best,” he said. “They worked together, helped each other out and stayed extra hours to get it done. I truly believe they went over and above what was asked of them and did their finest work. It wasn’t unusual that I had to throw them out when the hour just got too late, they worked three shifts, Sundays, and even Labor Day. I simply can’t thank them enough!”
Cole’s daughter Emily, who serves as the director of ecommerce for World Wide Stereo added that this was typical of what occurs at World Wide Stereo with their involvement in the community and their philosophy of “doing well by doing good.”
“People are happy to work with us on projects,” she said. “And this was the grandest of them all.”
The grand reopening celebration was just the first of several that World Wide Stereo has planned. A public grand opening is scheduled for the weekend of March 17.
