Experience Mt.Vernon as your Next Getaway
Happy Friday! Today we want to recognize someone who serves our Mt. Vernon community and is sure to make any day brighter. Sheryl works at the Starbucks located inside Kroger. Besides being talented at whipping up your favorite drink, Sheryl takes the time to remember customer names and even their regular orders! Her friendly voice can be heard greeting you as soon as you walk in and her constant positive attitude is infectious. Sheryl goes above and beyond regular customer service and is a source of daily encouragement to her customers. Next time you go in Kroger, stop by Starbucks and meet a new friend, Sheryl! *Both Starbucks locations release their Holiday menu today and are offering a free reusable red cup with purchase while supplies last, today only! #starbucks #customerservice #enjoyillinois #enjoymtvernon
