Lessin wins 'Super Service' award

Drew Lessin of Detroit Lakes is the most recent recipient of the "Super Service Award" -- a recognition handed out by the promotions and events committee of the Detroit Lakes Regional Chamber of Commerce.

Lessin is the assistant manager of Tires Plus in Detroit Lakes, and has been working there for 10 years.

An anonymous customer nominated Lessin for the award, which is handed out quarterly.

"This person just said that they got great service," said Chamber President Carrie Johnston, "they needed their car repaired and they just felt right at home."

Lessin, who works at the customer service desk, also helps in the back with what he calls "mechanical overflow".

"I've been trying," said Lessin, who was surprised with the award, which included flowers and $25 in chamber bucks, "my dad has been teaching me everything I know about this, so that helps. I try to impress him, and it's worked out," he laughed.

Lessin's father, Mark, owns Tires Plus, which is located at 300 Main Street West.

"I've been working for him since I could drive 16 years ago, so it's been pretty awesome," said Lessin, who lives in Detroit Lakes with his wife, Jes, and new daughter, Mackenzie.
