Tim Whitcomb Wins National Award

Congratulations to Chamber Member Tim Whitcomb- Farmers Insurance Agency on being awarded the Quality Storefront of the Month award for June by Farmers Insurance. This is a National award presented internally on a monthly basis. This award is presented based on customer service & feedback, professionalism of the office, and the look and feel of the actual storefront.   

Whitcomb beat out 400 agents in Minnesota as well as agents from other states. Whitcomb has been in business since 1996 and moved his offices to Downtown Shakopee a year and a half ago. "If you invest in your business it will pay off" said Whitcomb. Well Tim, we are glad you invested in our community, and congratulations on this award.
