Optimal Delivery Time

We struggle with what is the "best" time for our delivery trucks to depart for their deliveries...Of course part of the decision is based on the length of the route (longer routes must leave earlier) but what do you think? Is it better to get your delivery earlier in the day or is it better to be able to call in to the wholesale house a little later in the morning and still get what you need on the truck that day knowing that the delivery will get to you later than if it left early? Would really love to get some feedback. Thanks!

May we all never forget the tragic events of September 11, 2001. May God bless the United States of America and all those who lost their lives and lost loved ones.

National Teacher Day

Isn't it time all the great teachers that positively influenced us, our children or some other special person in our life were recognized? I don't know about you but I think that most teachers are under paid and under appreciated. They deserve a "holiday" that celebrates the important job they do. Nothing says "Thank you" or "You Are Special" like flowers. Did you know that a special day is already established for just such a celebration? In the USA it is the Tuesday of the first full week of May. Our industry must find a way to educate the public about this day and to promote flowers as the perfect gift to express their gratitude.
