Gilmore Services Starts Shredding At Airpark

New business provides shredding service

By Sid Riley

If a Sheet Shredder Shreds Sheets and sits among shredded sheets, how many sheets can a sheet shredder shred? As this writer started to compose this story about Gilmore services, that phrase insisted on being included.

In today’s world of high tech identity theft, individuals and families must become more security conscious. Among this enhanced level of personal security should be the practice of regularly shredding any documents which might lead a clever crook into your personal life. By obtaining a credit card number from an old invoice, or a cancelled check which discloses your bank account number, or some government document which might include your social security number….we are all made vulnerable and helpless to what amounts to common thievery.

On Saturday, October 17, Gilmore Services was operating out of the old Shades Incorporated building near the main entrance to the Airport Industrial Park. They were working in conjunction with a “Secure Your ID Day” program sponsored by the Better Business Bureau of Northwest Florida, the National Foundation for Credit Counseling, and the National Association for Information Destruction, in an effort to combat identity theft and to increase awareness of this growing problem.
