A Message From Mark Whitlow & OPA

All of us at OPA appreciate and value our long-standing partnership

It is important for all of us to work together through these trying times. When we work together as a team we can accomplish anything. As we have always stressed, it is very important for us to keep it local. Many of our fellow local businesses have been forced to close placing many of our neighbors out of work and without income. This should make us all aware of the importance of supporting local business and the economic impact of keeping our dollars local. Please do your best to support these, and all local businesses, in the many ways still available even when they are closed. If you need more information on how, please reach out to us. We can direct you to many available sites with detailed information.

Because OPA distributes critical sanitation products as well as critical products needed to allow residents to work from home, we are considered an “essential” business and will continue to provide service to you.

Our entire OPA team is working diligently, tracking down essential products that you require to run your businesses and to keep them safe and sanitary. We are looking at every available vendor and manufacturer to find hand sanitizer, anti-bacterial wipes, soap and toilet paper – just to name a few. As we come across this inventory we are notifying everyone through email and social media and rushing the product to you. We are filling backorders as quickly as the products become available.

Kansas City is a close knit community and we will persevere, I have no doubt. If we stay positive, work with one another, and lend a hand to all of our neighbors this will make us an even stronger community.

I wish you all the best and if there is anything at all we can do to help, please let us know. Thank you again for your dedication and partnership.

Sincerely, Mark Whitlow and the entire team at OPA
