Dear Mr. William C. Rhodes lll:
I am sending you this E-Mail in hopes that you can help. I know there is a lot of face book bashing , as I feel above this. As you are aware, there was a state of emergency for Florida. My brother-in-law, James Hodgins, works for youre company in Clearwater, Fla.
Everyone was told to evacuate. While Jim has 2 small children and a wife. Along with his sick father-in-law living with him. One of your managers told him he had to stay for his shift or he was going to be fired. They got hit with Hurricane Irma and are now without electricity as they had to stay behind along with their oldest daughter, age 6. Everyone was extremely terrified since they were forced into this situation which could have been prevented.
I would have thought Auto Zone took care of their employees and made sure safety of their employees is one of their Top Priorities. They do not have any power as well as supplies are diminishing. How can Auto Zone make this Right? Just as a suggestion, maybe a generator provided until they receive power. If you would like to contact me further, Please E-Mail me at mrroethlein@ gmail.com.
