Back-to-school time is often a time of new beginnings and possibly new clothes and new school supplies. It is also a time that retailers look forward to every year. Most people take for granted that whatever supplies they need to start a new school year will be abundantly available at their favorite retailer. But do you ever stop to think about the journey those goods have taken to get to the store shelf?
When Tonnie Thompson started working at The Shippers Group in 1974, President Richard Nixon resigned in the wake of the Watergate scandal and Gerald Ford became POTUS. Gas was only $.55 per gallon and a dozen eggs cost $.78. That year the Miami Dolphins defeated the Minnesota Vikings in the Superbowl and The Godfather Part 2 was one of the year's most popular movies. During Tonnie's years at The Shippers Group a lot has changed but one thing that has remained consistent is Tonnie's work ethic and dedication to do his best work every day.
