Weekly Newsletter


Welcome to the Mid-Atlantic Weekly Newsletter!!!!! We will be utilizing this new platform to streamline and standardize our divisional communication. This is a great resource and a really simple way to ensure that you have all of the information and tools to be as effective as possible.

The goal is to have this out to you every Friday (We know we are a bit late with this one.... but it is our first one so we were hoping for a bit of slack) allowing you to plan for your next week.

Please make sure you take the time to read and review all of the content as it is very valuable. We did want to make you aware, that right now the Newsletter is in its infancy stages, in the future we plan to attach Point of Sale, and give you New Item Launch Packets when New Items are set up, And as always, we are open to suggestions; this is a continued work in progress.

We hope you enjoy the simple format and the valuable content.

Discontinued Blow Out Items- Need to Clean up the Slots.

As a team, we have decided to Discontinue the following items (**these are items, that have been reviewed an approved by the CDS team) due to lack of movement. However, we still have cases in the slots and need your help to move out these cases allowing us to empty out the slot. We have added Hot Pricing to these items to help them move.

New Items in STOCK!!!

These new items have been brought in to Aberdeen within the last few weeks. If you are interested in selling these products please make sure to submit usage so we do not short customers.

Please note in the future we will publish POS and New Item Launch Packets for each of our new stocked items.

Did You Know? Reactivation Of DS Items

If you are looking to reactivate items that are discontinued (due to seasonality or one time punch) we still ask that you fill out the New Item Request form. The Marketing team utilizes this form to ensure that we have completed all the pieces of the item set up process. It also is a communication point to let the CDS know when items would be back in stock. For these reasons and some other tracking/sourcing limitations that I will not bore you with, this is the only way to communicate reactivation.

However, when asking for an item to be reactivated here is all you have to fill out on the form

  • List the GFS Item Code
  • In the Description Section type: Reactivation
  • Fill in Price Information: We ask that you provide this because there may have been a price increase since the customer last purchased, and if the pricing discrepancies is more than the customer is willing to pay, we want that vetted out before we place the order.
  • Usage.

Those simple four pieces of information are all we need to expedite your request.

Long Inventory Blowout

We are a bit long on inventory on these items. We are offering hot pricing on "long" cases to help stabilize inventory and avoid the dreaded and very expensive liquidation. Please note these items are not being discontinued.

The images and descriptions below review these items that we are long on.

Lets work together to ensure that we do not liquidate.
