2014 "SWEET FUNDRAISER" FALL SALE
The dates for the 2014 FALL SALE have been posted on the ORDER PAGE. Check them out to find out when orders are due and when your orders will be delivered.
NEW FOR FALL 2014Over the years I have been asked if we could ship a carton of oranges or grapefruit to a relative, in say Phoenix, AZ.
Well, I think I have come up with a solution to this. I am in the final stages of working with a company, that will pick up the fruit at my shipping point in Parlier, CA. They then will ship it by ground to their terminals in the eight western states. Those being CA, OR, WA, ID, UT, NV, AZ, CO. This however will be ZIP CODE specific. Unfortunley they do not ship to each entire state. Meaning, they would not be able to deliver to, say Burns, OR or Craigmont, ID. In California they ship to the entire state.
What kind of costs are we talking. This is not in "Stone" as of yet, however, early indications lead me to believe that I can bring this in at around $15.00 to $16.00 extra shipping. Meaning, let's say you sell your oranges and grapefruit for $25.00 per case in your selling area. You would add $15.00 on to the $25.00 to get a total of $40.00 per case. You would still make your entire markup on each sale. Still at $2.00 per pound, and delivered to Grandma and Grandpa's front door.
I will put up on the web site a downloadable map and also ZIP CODES listed by state that you can give to your sellers. When they ask the customer about shipping to another area, they can look at each state on the maps and the ZIP CODE sheet and see if we can ship to that particular ZIP CODE.
Still have some thing to work out, but I think this would be another tool for you to sell more cases. Stay tuned for up dates.
Pricing for the FALL SALE will be established by 6 October 2014.
LID PRICE LID PRICE DEFINITION: A LID PRICE means that is the MAX that I will charge you. If the price comes out lower at the time of shipment, I will INVOICE you at the lower price.

BUCKS FOR YOU
CONTINUED FOR 2014 Fall SALE The best MARKETING that I have is you. Two years ago I started a new program where you refer me a new customer and I reward you with a "$100.00 Visa Gift Card." For the 2011 FALL SALE I gave out $800.00 in VISA Gift Cards. In the 2012 SPRING SALE I gave customers another $500.00 for referrals. For the FALL 2013 and the SPRING 2014 SALES I sent out another $1400.00 Keep after it and I will continue to reward you. If I left someone out from the last fall, let me know, and I will get your card out to you. MY BAD!!! SEE THE DETAILS BELOW ON HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS.
HOW DOES BUCKS FOR YOU WORK
Do you need to make a few extra BUCKS for the Holiday Season? M&R Sales
can help you do just that. This year any new or previous customer of M&R
Sales that recommends a NEW customer to me, and that new customer sells
a minimum of 100 cases of oranges and grapefruit combined. M&R Sales will send you
a $100.00 VISA Gift Card. If you recommend 2 new customers, I will send you
2 of the VISA Gift Cards, and so on. This is a great way to supplement your
income for the Holidays, and also gets me new customers that can benefit
from the "Sweet Fundraiser" program.
I will have the cards to you prior to the Holiday Season, and you are free
to use them for whatever you want.
2015 WINTER CONVENTIONS
Will be in PORTLAND, OR at the 2015"Northwest Baseball Coaches Convention" on January 9, 10, & 11. It is always nice to get to see current customers and also new customers that I have not met before at these events. Also, I usually get a few new customers also. That is nice too!!!! Then in February at the SEA-TAC Double Tree in Seattle on February 5, 6, 7, and 8 for the NORTHWEST ALL SPORTS CLINIC, hope to see some more of you there at this great event too! Happy Fundraising this FALL!
