Advantage CLOSED Wednesday Due to Winter Weather

Wednesday, January 12th, 2011 | Uncategorized

Third day in a row we are closed. Both UPS and FedEx are not running. We received 6 inches of snow, but whats made it worse is that it started melting and when we were down to 2 inches of slush the cold front moved in. So we have two inches of ice everywhere. The yards look like snow, but it’s really white ice. We’re shooting to open on Thursday, but I wouldn’t hold my breath. This is really bad timing as this is busy season for us and the orders are stacking up. A few employees have been working remotely and have processed the email and online orders, so once we open we will have plenty of MICR Toner and Check Paper to ship. Thanks again for your patience.

It turns out we we able to get several dozen shipments of MICR toner cartridges out on Wednesday. FedEx Ground made a pickup, while Express did not. We only had two workers that could make it in, but that was enough to get us started digging our way out. Thanks to telecommuting and the internet we were able to process the online, email and fax orders while being snowed in at home. So we’re not too far behind. Thursday will be a big day as we have a backlog of 100 orders or so.
