Moving into Summer

The heat waves are starting in NYC now.  With that comes all of the usual small business headaches that we have to deal with.  Air conditioners that need to be upgraded, loading up on cooler bags for delivery, changing the product mix to make sure we keep ice pops in stock.  And, dealing with slowdowns in volume as half of NY takes off for the Hamptons each weekend...

At least there is some good news going on also. The new discounts are working very well and we are getting great feedback from customers about the large order discounts.  With those, people no longer have to trade off low price vs top quality service - we can give both.

I have to run and get back on the phone with the architects about the new air conditioners being installed soon (assuming we can satisfy the NYC dept of buildings).
