Our service desk is fully functional and the new self-service area is up and running. This area includes 2 copy/print machines, 6 self-checkout machines and a self-service fax, as well as a small work area.
This leaves just a few punch list items to complete and some finishing touches like signage and the delivery of a couple small tables. We are happy to report that this project is on schedule and within budget. Our PSIP page has complete information.
