Shipping and More at the UPS Store
The UPS Store, located at 2305 Ashland Street (across from Albertson’s), may be just one of 5,000 independently owned stores within the United States and Canada, but for owner Jason Souders, it’s been his baby for the last 15 years.
“I’ve been working in customer service since I got my first summer job at twelve years old,” said Jason whose family moved to Ashland when he was six. “I spent three years in the heavy freight industry and was ready for a change. I was thinking of moving out of the valley, but my family convinced me to stay and start running a family business.”
Operating his own business is something Jason finds very rewarding.
“We offer common service in an extraordinarily fast and efficient way,” he said. “We specialize in packing and shipping, mailbox rentals, and business solutions/document services. Customers can expect prompt, knowledgeable, friendly, solution-oriented service with a smile. The best quality and best service are our daily goals.”
The UPS Store also offers packing supplies, the “best greeting cards in Ashland,” notary service, fax service, photo copies, packing and moving materials, UPS and USPS, freight, custom crating and boxing, and local pickup and delivery.
“We strive to give fast, efficient, cost-effective options for all of our customers in a fun environment,” Jason said.
Nationally, the UPS Store was named one of the 50 Top Postal and Business Services Franchises in the United States for 28 consecutive years by Entrepreneur Magazine in their annual “Franchise 500.” In 2017 and 2018, the UPS Store was ranked #4 overall among top franchise brands by Entrepreneur Magazine. Also USA Today and G.I. Jobs named the UPS Store franchise in the Top 50 Franchises for military veterans.
In addition to traditional locations in shopping centers and commercial complexes, the UPS Store locations can be found on college campuses, military bases, convention centers, hotels and urban renewal areas/empowerment zones.
“We want to thank all of our loyal customers for so many years for your business and support,” Jason said. “And remember: nothing is too big for us to ship, as we have crate and freight services available for large items. All of our UPS services are guaranteed.”
