“I literally get calls weekly from folks wanting to quote us credit-card processing rates,” said George Wilder, owner/president of The Locker Room, a 14-employee, men’s clothing store in Montgomery and Auburn. The Locker Room uses Huntsville-based processor CHECKredi®, the Alabama Retail Association partner that offers group negotiated rates typically reserved for only the largest retailers.
George knows his rates are the best they can be, because he validated it.
“A long-time friend, who has been in the processing business for a long time, asked me if he could give us a quote and try to win our business. He is the only person I would trust to see our information. He said he could not touch CHECKredi®’s rate. This is someone I would trust my grandkids with.”
The service The Locker Room gets from CHECKredi® also is top notch, George said. “We updated our terminals several months ago with chip-ready technology,” he said, adding that with CHECKredi®, it was easy. “You invariably have issues with equipment, but we have always gotten replacement equipment promptly. We have a couple of folks we deal with, so the service and personal aspect is what we like. We like doing business with folks we can talk to and not go through voice mails to get to someone who can help.”
