UPS Store under new management

Twenty years ago PJ Thurkauf started as a part-time employee at the Lake Hiawatha location when it was called Mail Boxes Etc. 

After working in the store for a number of years here in Lake Hiawatha, the owner of the franchise location purchased the Morristown location as a second store, and I moved over to the Morristown store as the General Manager.  

A year later in 1999 I purchased the store in Morristown from him, and have been the owner there.  The franchise changed it’s name from Mail Boxes Etc to The UPS Store in 2003.  

Thurkauf was raised in Lake Hiawatha, graduated from Parsippany High School and spent a number of years as both a volunteer firefighter with Parsippany’s District 5 Fire Dept and as an EMT with Rockaway Neck First Aid Squad. 

A UPS Store franchise location offers a full array of print and business services.  They offer custom packaging and shipping solutions including UPS, the United States Postal Service, freight services and soon they will be offering DHL service for more international options.

They maintain a fully digital copy and print center that can produce anything from flyers to business cards to banners and more.

The UPS Store also provides graphic design.  They offer secure mail receiving services with their large selection of mailboxes. It’s great for small offices and home based professionals to have a secure place to receive mail and packages outside the home.

They have a solution for just about every business need; they’re more than just shipping, they’re United Problem Solvers.
