Benches at the bandshell (08/20/2014)
From: Bernie Windschitl

General Manager of Anova Furnishings, Winona

A member of my manufacturing team recently brought to my attention the letter titled Enjoy the music fix the benches! dated July 28, 2014. The author asserted that our product design was sadistic and the benches are set uncomfortably high. Im very sorry to hear that our product detracted in any way from her experience. We design our products with care and take great pride in manufacturing them right here in Winona at Eighth and Jefferson streets. After reading the letter I inspected the site and determined that the benches were manufactured and installed more than 15 years ago. Im not sure what our mounting instructions looked like back then, but based on todays installation instructions they were installed a couple inches too high. Also, the bandshell seating sits on sloped ground making it hard to get the height of the seat just right. We dont work directly with contractors to install our product, but Im sure the group that did the work on the bandshell did the best job they could with no intent of creating an uncomfortable space. As part of our efforts to continuously improve we will review our current installation instructions for mounting in ground benches and make certain the seat height is highlighted. Thank you for the feedback.
