This summer seven Clarksville, Tn., Shell and BP convenience stores operated by Huddleston Oil Co. recieved state certification as "Responsible Vendors" with the help of the Community Anti-Drug Coalition of Rutherford County.
"Being a locally owned company, we are very committed to being good neighbors and being a positive influence in our community," said George Huddleston, president.
"CADCOR provided the training to our employees on responsible alcohol sales through their TIPS training program, which enabled us to achieve this certification for each store employee and reduce the possibility of sales to underaged or intoxicated customers, thereby enhancing safety and quality of life for all of us." (reprinted from Clarksville Daily News June 27, 2010)
Businesses that eliminate sales to underage drinkers or intoxicated persons do us all a big favor. Maybe, just maybe, someone did not suffer injury or death, because this company is proactive.
Thanks to CADCOR for making this possible.
