CONSIGNMENT ORDER

Postby esprit » Sat Mar 24, 2012 1:34 pm

Don't have pricing yet but we're bringing in an order of Liefmans Goudenband (20 x 375ml) and Saison Dupont (24 x 330ml). Supplies are limited and it's first come, first served. Prices will be competitive and well worth the drive to Buffalo. It will be about 4-6 weeks so let me know if you want to reserve any. Please contact me at espritagencies@sympatico.ca. No deposit...no forms...easy peasy.

I'm not doing much trading, but I love the Goudenband. If anyone that's picking it up is looking for some BC brews, let me know.

I'd be happy to take 8 off someone in Toronto/East York's hands, if anybody finds 24 to be too many.

I ordered a case of Dupont, but I would be happy to take any extra Goudenband if anyone wants to offload some. PM me!

Peter, I've e-mailed you twice regarding your Lindeman's Gueuze Cuvee Renee. Maybe I'm ending up in your spam folder or something.

Can you check for it and get back to me?

Cheers,

Andrew

What??? You didn't get THIS email from him?


From Esprit email mailing list:

"A customer contacted me today and has prompted me to write this e-mail to all of you. Many of you have dealt with me for years and know the system. Many of you have not. We take reservations on most of our popular beers which tend to be Trappists. We do not know when they will arrive. The LCBO does not share this information with us. We take reservations and as soon as the product is available, we contact our customers on the waiting list. Far too many people book appointments to pick up from our house and then cancel or just don’t show up while we try to schedule around them and we receive hundreds of e-mail each month from consumers asking about the status of their order and I cannot give them much information. When it’s here, I contact you…if you don’t here from me it’s not here. My business cannot function with the volume of inquiries we receive so I implore you all to book an order and not contact me again until I tell you that your beer is available. I know this sounds like a rant but I hope some of you can appreciate that if there is no communication, there is nothing to communicate. We are a small company and don’t have the resources to communicate on a daily basis with everyone who placed an order for 1 case. If this persists we’ll just drop our consumer business because dealing with bars and restaurants involves much less hassle and 10 times the volume."

OMG, not hundreds of e-mails a month from consumers wanting to know about products, services and orders! It's almost like they are running a buisiness or something. :roll:

Did anyone pick any cases up from this yet? If anyone wants to part with some Dupont or the Goudenband I would be up for some bottles.

I don't know why these Ontario importers are so afraid of technology. Build a functioning website that you can actually keep up to date and it will take care of a lot of communication. Everyone sends out emails and spreadsheets and are generally pretty horrible at keeping people informed. How hard is it to keep a running list of available products and status of orders that is online and accessible? You can find simple solutions to automate notifications to customers when orders are in. I can see how it would be annoying being bombarded with questions about orders but that's just a part of doing business. Come up with a solution for it! I would buy a lot more beer if it didn't seem like I was a burden to these people. Maybe esprit should drop their consumer business considering he hates his customers so much that he continuously has to rant about them.
