Debbie Stratton – Likes WWE & LOVES Her New Escape.

Debbie Stratton is a hard worker, a kind spirit and a wonderful customer of ours. She was in to pick up her Ford Escape and had a few minutes to spare to do a quick interview. If you see her at the Grand Harbor on the weekends be sure to say “hi”!

What brought you into Runde’s Today?
An SUV.  I’ve been really wanting an SUV.

And what did you end up getting?
A Ford Escape. I’m looking forward to it for the winter and whatnot. And everyone has one now, I thought it was about time to get with it.

How did you find Runde’s?
I actually bought a car from Al before, so I knew where to go when I wanted to get my SUV.  He was on the lot one Saturday morning and I was looking around and he was very kind and helped me find the perfect car.

How did you enjoy your experience here?
It was fantastic. I’d totally recommend it to everybody. I even come back and visit when I’m not even shopping for a car just to see how Al and everyone is doing. Service here is fantastic as well.

On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your experience?
A 10, definitely.   I’d recommend it … really … you are treated like a king when you walk in and you feel that you are in control and have time to think about everything instead of being rushed and pushed into something you may not want.

Are you from the area?
I’m from Dubuque.   Lived there all my life.

Any Family or Pets?
It’s just me and my poodle, Buttercup. I’ve had her since she was a puppy, she just turned 2 years old. We go for rides around Dubuque or Maquoketa. I take her pretty much everywhere.

What else do you like to do around the area?
I like Zoro’s Gyros on Central Ave. If you go away hungry, that’s your own fault, because they give you more than enough. And they are very friendly.

Watch any movies?
Nope, I work to much.

Any good shows?
Oh, I’m a huge WWE Fan. I’ve been to a show in Chicago. It was awesome!

Where do you work at?
I work at an embroidery business out in Peosta. I love it there. I embroider things like names and numbers to the back of shirts. It’s kind of neat walking around seeing your work on the back of someone’s shirt.

I also work at the Grand Harbor Center on the weekends near the water park. I’m an arts-crafts teacher. If your kids don’t want to spend all their time in the water-park then they can come to my class and make bird-feeders out of pine cones, peanut butter and bird food. We also play games and do various activities.

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I’d like to go back to Branson, MO to see the musical shows and stuff. I’ve seen Bobby Vinton, Andy Williams, Wayne Newton, The Osmonds. It’s just a great time there.

Any hobbies?
I do a lot of cross-stitching.

Looking forward to the winter at all?
No, not really… I like the fall. I like to watch the leaves fall and go to the apple orchids. I make my own apple pie and easy fudge.

Sounds good, maybe you can come by and let us sample some!
Oh, I’d be delighted to! I make deserts for the Rockdale Church’s Cookie and Candy Walk in the first weekend in December. You can buy cookies and candy by the pound there, it’s amazing.

If you were to win the lottery what would you do with the money?
I’d probably just sit back and relax for a week. After that it’d get old, so I’d probably get back into the regular routine.

You wouldn’t buy a bigger house or anything?
Oh no, I love my home.  I might add a garage if I won the lottery, maybe buy another vehicle. But nothing too major.

Excited for Halloween?
Oh yes, I have to work during it though so I can’t do much for it. I’m more into Christmas anyway.

Anything you’d like to add?
For the great experience I’ve had out here I’d really, really recommend Runde’s. Easy going, no pressure, just perfect. I had a brother that bought from Runde’s and he loves his Explorer.

Thanks Debbie!
