Ace Hardware associate nationally recognized for work after Katrina
By Staff Report - May 11, 2006
Destrehan, La. - In the wake of Hurricane Katrina’ s devastation, many local residents turned to Anthony’s Ace Hardware for help in rebuilding their homes and lives. However, if it weren't for the dedication and resolve of employee Leslie Lauman, those residents would have found a “closed" sign instead of a welcome mat.
"Leslie always listened to customers and assisted them with all of their needs, but she set herself apart after Hurricane Katrina blew through," said Brian Tobin, owner of Anthony's Ace Hardware." After the hurricane, neither I nor the managers could get to the store. Leslie came to check for damages and found that customers desperately needed to repair their homes.
