Craig Corey Vacations Reopens Travel Office Following Covid-19 Lockdown.
LANSING—Michigan—Jun. 3, 2021- Craig Corey Vacations (aka Craig Corey Travel Service, Inc.,) a leading travel company offering travel services in Mid-Michigan and beyond, has kick-started its operations on Washington Square, in Downtown Lansing, Michigan.
The company was temporarily closed for over fourteen months following the Michigan Governor’s lock-down mandate as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic in March, 2020.
“I expected that we would be closed for only a few weeks. But it became clear as time went on that we were in this for a very long time,” recounts Craig Corey, owner and founder of the eponymous travel company. “As a travel industry veteran of over forty-five years, I have weathered some pretty painful events including-but not limited to-the Great United Airlines Christmas Strike of 1975, numerous economic recessions and acts of war, the downing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland back in 1989 for example, and most notably the aftermath of the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks. All of these events severely crippled the travel industry. I figured, ya know, we survived all those other things, I’m confident we can get past this,” cites Craig.
“I e-mailed hundreds of our customers the day we locked the office door back in March 2020, and said I want to let you know that we will be fine, and we will remain in-business once this most unprecedented and difficult time has passed,” remembers Craig.
Craig Corey Vacations is the only brick-n-mortar travel company operating in the City of Lansing proper, with offices in the Washington Square Principal Shopping District, and a significant market reach outside of Lansing, including customer bases in Metro Detroit, Grand Rapids, Chicago, and New York City.
“2021 marks our 30th anniversary, so, the reopening of our business this year, is a watershed moment for us,” notes Craig happily.
