We had 137 members order 1,585 different items this cycle. Total purchases were $8,554, which is down about $800 from last cycle. The website’s server went down for a few hours on Saturday, which may have been why we dropped a bit in sales. Hopefully we’ll bounce back next cycle.
Pick-up is on Thursday at our Des Moines-area sites or Friday in Ames. Specifics on times and locations are to the left if you are receiving this as an email. We have an alternative pick-up time of 10:30 am to noon on Saturday at our Merle Hay Mall location. Please send an email to email@example.com if you are coming on Saturday.
NOTE: Parking will be a bit of an issue for our new Merle Hay Mall location. We were warned that parking by “No Parking in Fire Lane” signs is not good. You can pull in by the loading dock just to the west of the mall entrance, or you can park use the parking lots to the south and west of the parking ramp that’s being torn down. Also, we now have several shopping carts to help folks get their orders out to where they’ve parked.
Also, you can access your invoice access by logging in, going to the shopping tab, and click “view in-process invoice” on the left hand side of the page.)
