KeHE Gourmet has dropped their order threshold for receiving free shipping from $1,000 to $500, which means I’ll be ordering more frequently now – more like every two weeks instead of once a month. This should prove beneficial in terms of piquing the interest of employees with new items, and also with keeping their new items fully stocked.
For example, the Badia coconut water was such a big hit that I ran out a week before I placed my next order, which meant that we were without it for nearly two weeks since it takes KeHE about 4-5 days to get a new shipment to my doorstep.
Last night I stopped by for about an hour to start processing the order I received yesterday. I cracked open two packages of Annie Chun’s seaweed strips (wasabi & sesame) for sampling. One of my co-workers in support who was pulling a late shift took samples from both packages down to the support department to share a couple of her team members. I’ll shrink those out of inventory and use a “sample” reason code that I’ve needed to create for some time now.
