Letter: Thank You For Your Support and Patronage
A letter of thanks to the community from Barry Schrutt of Photo World.
After 40 years of owning my own local business I have met and worked with many incredible people. I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for supporting me and my business, Photo World, through the years. It has been a pleasure serving and working with you all.
First and foremost I would like to thank my wife and my family for all of their support through the years. I couldn't have done it without them. Also, a thank you to all of my past employees and my most recent employee, Karen Balzano, who has worked with me for the last 22 years.
The town of Bristol has been wonderful to me and I thank the surrounding towns including as well as surrounding towns including Warren, Barrington, Middletown and Portsmouth for their support. In the past I enjoyed working with Bristol, Warren and Barrington law enforcement officials and fire departments to develop their photographs.
In years past, Roger Williams University also played a large role in my business, whether it was sending students to get supplies at Photo World or having their own employees utilize the store. I also want to thank the Downtown Bristol Merchants Association and Bristol Fourth of July Committee, both of which have been very supportive over the years.
And last but not least, I would like to thank the community and everyone throughout the East Bay who I have had the opportunity to help and work with. I sincerely appreciate your patronage and hope to see you all in the future.
Barry Schrutt, owner of Photo World
