"My dad always said when I would go into business, he'd build me an office in Huntley," says Bakley. And he did. Although her father, Timer Bakley, died in 1986, he built the building, housing Huntle'y Travel currently, in 1974. It was originally the Huntley Supenparket, which now has moved into a larger building added on to the complex. Huntley Travel is a full service travel agency and a branch ofiice of Woodstock Travel, owned and operated by Bernice Bakley of Woodstock and Roger Copel of Algonquin. The two bought out Easy Travel in Woodstock on June 11, 1990 and reopened as Woodstock Travel. Bakley, originally from Huntley, sayS, "We always talked about opening an office in Huntley, it was a matter of when we were ready and when the community was ready." So four years later to the day, on June 11, 1994 they opened Huntley Travel. "The location couldn't be better... We've had a great first week, more clients than I expected," continues Bakley. She says it was a good opportunity to get their location. The Bakley family owns the building and had been trying to lease it to a single business. So it was decided to subdivide the building and lease to four smaller businesses; Huntley Travel, Huntley Floral, Country Copy and Huntley Area Chamber of Conunerce and Industry. The four businesses plan a combined open house on July 18-16. Bakley is proud of their agency's sero employee Huntley Travel's office manager, Christine Wallis, and owner, Bernice Bakley turn-over rate in four years in business. Christine Wallis of Woodstock is working as full-time manager of the branch office. Between Wallis and Bakley they have 24 years of travel experience. Karen Blanko of Hampshire is working with them sts an intern from the Elgin Community College travel program. Bakley who is a graduate of Southeastern Academy in Florida, feels her Huntley and Woodstock staffs have a lot to offer the corporate traveler in services and experience. They provide fax service, corporate profiles, same-day delivery, and "frequent flier" program assistance. Bakley says,"The fax has become a very important tool in this business. We have a list of clientele that we fax a list of last minute (travel) specials... If they're interested in (a particular special), they call us." In addition, between all of her agents, they've traveled much of the world; Europe, Africa, Central America, Australia, as well as all over the U.S. to provide first hand knowledge. Bakley, a former Huntley High School graduate, serves as secretary for the Huntley Chamber and maintains memberships for both the Woodstock and Huntley offices. She was apprehensive to be nominated for the position at first. She says now, "It's been wonderful being involved with the Huntley Chamber... I should fmd the person that ' nominated me and thank them." "With the expected growth coming to Huntley, we anticipate a good business here," continues Bakley, "I feel like I've come home, opening in Huntley... so many people stop by just to say hello or good luck." Her a^ection for Huntley is reflected in her goals for Huntley Travel; to build a clientele in Huntley, really help support the community, and be a stable business in the town. Bakley comments, "The sense of loyalty my family has to the community has helped me and I want to continue that conunitment with my business." Huntley Travel is open 9am-6pm Monday through Friday and 9am-lpm Saturday. The phone number is 669-8900.
