It’s Labor Day! (So we’re not laboring)

That’s right Solid Signal fans, our offices are closed today. Our techs are home with their families, our warehouse staff is having a barbecue and as for me, your humble blogger, I’m working… as little as possible.

You can still shop at Solid Signal today.

Of course, our computerized ordering systems are still up and working hard, but no orders will ship today. As soon as our hard-working staff gets in on Tuesday morning we’ll process all the orders from the long weekend and we’ll get your order out to you as quickly as we can.

In the meantime, enjoy!

Labor Day is one of those days when we take a step back from the hustle and bustle and just enjoy ourselves, at least most of us. I give a sincere tip of the hat to all those first responders, doctors, retail workers, and waitstaff who work to serve the rest of us on a day most of us take for granted. At least on Labor Day, they’re the real heroes.

Unlike other holidays, Labor Day honors regular, hardworking folks. A lot of the people in our Novi, Michigan corporate headquarters fall into that category. We’re just like you… just crazy techies who love what we do and love the opportunity to play with the latest gear. Of course we also love serving our customers and at the end of a long week we like to relax. Labor Day lets us spend a little time at our homes, enjoying the life we work hard to make.

And, of course that won’t stop a few of us from putting in a little time into home theater projects. Just like you, we all want to make sure that satellite dish is aimed properly before winter comes. We want to make sure everything’s properly grounded, scan for channels in case some have moved, and clean up a little wiring that’s gotten away from us.

Or, just put your feet up and enjoy.

Some of us just plan on settling back to grill a few brats or watch a little sports. For us, Labor Day is a little piece of heaven. It’s one of those days we work for all year. I hope you take a moment to enjoy it and to look forward to tomorrow. That’s right. Tomorrow, our offices open up again. We’ll have plenty of happy rested people who want nothing more than to help you make your technology wishes come true.
