Jubilee Furniture weekly post for Friday, November 8, 2013

It’s not unusual for customers to ask about delivery service – especially since the words “WE DELIVER” are painted on several of our walls (I rue the day my old warehouse manager did that!).

Truthfully, I never liked offering delivery for several reasons – it was confusing (we offered “curb side” delivery – off the truck, set on your driveway or sidewalk and that’s it) and for many customers it seemed expensive (0-5 miles from the store was $35 and it went up $15 for each addition five miles). 

Delivery was suspended when one of my guy injured himself.  That was in July.  Since then that guy is still out and my old warehouse manager left for a new position.  With two newish guys in the warehouse I’m realizing how much there is for them to learn and how challenging it would be to remove one of them to make deliveries.

Now four months into our “temporary” stop of delivering – it’s annoying customers and doesn’t win us any popularity points by dangling a delivery option on our walls but then telling people we currently aren’t offering the service and we have no idea when, or even if, we might resume.

I feel bad about that.

What I don’t feel bad about are the over 70 photos that follow showing you SOME of the furniture donated this week.  Let’s take a look!

the donor described this Thomasville piece as a two piece china cabinet – but I see it more as a storage/display cabinet.  It’s lighted too and is priced $65

it was hard to take photos of these pieces, so bear with me.  Also by Thomasville – there are four separate storage pieces (some with drawers, some with doors) – the shelves haven’t been put in but we have them – we’re selling all four pieces for $95 – only issue is the brass that runs along the bottom of each piece is coming off on some of them

To deliver or not to deliver?  That is the question.  I’d love your input, dear reader.

Should I buy a can of spray paint and be done with it?
