January Team Meetings

Starting in January, I will be holding team meetings on the first Tuesday morning at 9:00 and the first Wednesday evening at 6:00 of each month. I am hoping that by giving a daytime and an evening option that more of you will be able to attend. Our first meetings are on January 5 and January 6 and we are meeting at the Biggby Coffee located at 4450 Breton Road SE in Grand Rapids.

I hope to see you all there!

Scam Alert!!!!

I have been contacted by several of you who have received an email request to make a purchase. This is always exciting!!! However, as contact is made, this one explains that they must send payment via either check or money order as they don't use credit cards. Please beware! The way this ends of working is they send you payment for more than the purchase amount and ask that you refund the balance to them. Then, when it's too late and you have sent product and money, you find out that the original payment from them is fake and you are out the entire amount of their payment, the refund and the product.

Shout Out to the Nest!

I just want to give a big shout out to the Nest for doing an outstanding job of filling orders and meeting shipping deadlines this year. I can tell you that since I have been a designer, we have not had a Holiday Season go this smoothly and it has been FANTASTIC!!!

I know that several of you have voiced concerns over the length of the OOS list, but I assure you they are working with our vendors to speed up those delivery times and get stock back to normal. Just please keep the list in perspective . . . .with the number of items that we carry, it is really a very small number that are out of stock and many will be back in stock next week. There isn't a store out there right now that is fully stocked, I assure you! Just keep in mind that with our broad product line, we always have items that will offer amazing substitutions without affecting the quality, beauty, or sentiment of the gift.

You all have been amazing this season and I love how everyone works together to help out when a team member is in need.

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and an Amazing 2016!

Thank you so much for all you do,

Laura Ausbrooks

Executive Team Leader
