204 members ordered 2,134 different items this cycle. Total purchases were just almost $12,500. Last year’s number for the same cycle was just over $11,000, so it looks like about a 13% increase in same cycle sales.
If you are getting this message as an email, YOU ORDERED SOMETHING that needs to be picked up (each cycle a few people don’t realize they’ve ordered because we don’t use a check-out step).
Some quite points of info on distribution:
1. We’ve moved up the end of distribution on West Des Moines to 6 pm from 6:30 pm. Pick-up there is on Thursday of this week, as is all our other drop off sites except Ames, which is on Friday. Details on times and locations are available with this link.
NOTE: IF YOU ARRIVE BEFORE THE SCHEDULED START TIME, OUR VOLUNTEERS WON’T BE READY. PLEASE PLAN ACCORDINGLY AND BE PATIENT.
2. Our alternative pick up time will be from 10:30 to noon on Saturday, Sept. 12. If you need to use this alternative pick up time, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. We can accept EBT cards for payment ONLY AT OUR Franklin Plaza site. If you are an EBT member and are picking up at another location, please send an email to email@example.com so we can arrange for processing your payment
Final note: It’s a good idea to check to be sure your pick-up site is correct. You can access your invoice by logging in, going to the shopping tab, and click “view in-process invoice”. If it’s not right, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
