Rita Carbonara... A great gal!
Rita Carbonara - Sales - Customer Service
Rita was the first individual hired by Charles Blumer Company. Chuck had worked with Rita before at another company and realized what an asset she would be. Rita began as our retail merchandiser and did such a great job that she was promoted to sales several years ago. If we have a problem at retail level with one of our larger accounts, Rita always goes out to cover the problem because, quite simply, she is the very best at what she does. Rita and her husband Joe live in North East Philadelphia and they have three grown children and six grandchildren. Rita Loves to shop and to read on the beach. Her favorite places are Ocean City NJ and the Caribbean Islands. She is also an great amateur poet and loves interior decorating.
