Lockbusters New York Locksmith Gives Back

November 15, 2011

Hi! Jay here, owner of Lockbusters.

Now in our third year of New York City Locksmith service, I'm thrilled that we're getting great feedback and our business is growing. I hope I've even made some progress on my mission in starting Lockbusters. My goal is to transform the way New Yorkers think about the business of locksmithing: from skeevy "shadesmiths" to courteous professionals who genuinely care about your time and security.

For our success as a small business, I try to pay it forward whenever I can. I especially like helping out my furry friends:

This is me and pooch, Rocky. I adopted him from East Village animal shelter Social Tees, and he makes my life better in so many ways!

Your comments, reviews, and recommendations are the greatest reward for a job well done, but some of you are moved to add a gratuity. Please note that tipping the owner of this business is not expected! So when someone says "keep the change," I make sure to pass it along to someone in need.

So far, we've donated to several shelters for out-of-luck ani-pals: Social Tees, Animal Haven, Lil Monsters, and this week, Waggy Tails. We've also given to the Vermont flood relief effort in Hurricane Irene's aftermath, Smile Train, and a charity for grieving children in Massachusetts, The Children’s Room.

I wanted to let you know that your generosity is helping out more than this small business, even if in small amounts. If you have a pet cause you want me to know about, drop us a line! We’re working on our holiday giving strategy right now.

Lastly, know that all of the shelters I mentioned are temporary homes for a lot of great four-legged guys and girls who would just love to find their forever homes...
