After several weeks of waiting, Vanderhoof has a Greyhound office agent again. Services such as package transportation and the distribution of tickets will finally resume when the office opens on either Monday or Tuesday next week.
Ankie Nellen has worked in the community for eight years, she started out as a sales associate at 7-Eleven and worked her way up to assistant manager and certified store manager. She applied about three weeks ago because there wasn’t much growth for her available at 7-Eleven and she hopes to apply her skills to the Greyhound office.
“There will be a steady opening of the office again and the parcel pick up and delivery will be starting up again,” said Nellen. “I will do my best to open at the times that the community would like me to so long as it’s doable with the delivery and pickup services. And hopefully I will supply some other services also.”
Nellen has plans to also sell some products out of the store either on commission or otherwise depending on what can be worked out with Greyhound.
