This year we have chosen to follow the movement REI started a few years back by being CLOSED ON BLACK FRIDAY and #OptOutside instead! It only makes sense... we build backyards and sell bbq grills for people who love the outdoors. We would rather our employees and customers enjoy that time with their families. We've taken it one step further by also being closed on that Saturday and Sunday as well. So take that time to get outside and enjoy those leftovers!
At Pratt Guys, we ask our employees to “Be a KID” at all times. This is an acronym that I came up with to quickly explain our culture of building a team of people with strong character. It stands for: Kind, Involved and Dependable and we Pratt Guys want to Be a KID at work, at home and in life. On Saturday, November 10, 2018, 6 Pratt Guys, a spouse and child came together to prepare 588 bags of brown sugar oatmeal and it felt amazing to help make this happen!
Pratt Guys was honored to be invited to the 2018 Web.com Tour Championship as an event sponsor for this year's golf tournament held at the Atlantic Beach Country Club. At the event, we set up our a 6-post, beefed-up version of our Pratt Guys pergola, providing passersby with shade, comfortable seating from our Sunset West furniture line and a super bright, weatherproof SunBriteTV.
We also had a fun time being the place on the course for the weekend’s football games! On Saturday we had the Georgia Bulldogs vs. Missouri Tigers NCAA game and on Sunday the Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Tennessee Titans game.
In addition to having a relaxing weekend outdoors, getting to hang out with the attendees, volunteers and staff at the Pratt Guys Pergola, we were fortunate to have received the most amount of online votes in the the Web.com Small Business Championship in Jacksonville, FL, which resulted in Pratt Guys being presented with the award, just after kicking off the Web.com Tour Championship awards ceremony, on the green of Hole 18.
