One week in on the Burbank deal.....

Well, as of yesterday, all 41 pallets have arrived.  Do you know how much space 41 pallets takes up?  So much that we had to split the shipments into our two warehouses.  The first 12 pallets arrived here in Schererville late last week.  We starting breaking them down on Monday.  So far we've managed to get through six of the pallets.  As extremely organized as we are (cough, cough) it is still a lot of work.  Breaking down about a pallet at a time, seperating by sport, seperating by manufacturer, adding quantities to existing product, adding product back to the inventory that we haven't had in a while and of course the new product.  It's amazing after all these years that we still find boxes we've never had before!  Yes, so far we've added almost 100 brand new products to our website.  We've also put nearly 200 items back in stock that we haven't had recently.  Oh, and we are actually updating all the prices as we go along (no comments about the stale pricing please).  We are hoping to finish a few more pallets before the holiday.  Yes, Thanksgiving.  But there is also the shoppers holiday, you know, Black Friday.  Just in case we decide to run an AWESOME Black Friday special (stay tuned).  So, I'll finish up today by loading the new products and Christine will be in tomorrow to break down another pallet and we will start the process all over again on Monday.  Cards, cards....they are everywhere!  Rick.
