UPDATE, 3/6 – Shipping Advisory: Olive Branch Update
Due to inclement weather in the Memphis area, Diamond's Olive Branch Distribution Center was closed on Thursday, 3/5. In addition, though a majority of our Olive Branch crew was able to make it into work and complete the processing of most orders, it is unlikely that UPS will be able to make pick-ups from Olive Branch today.
As a result, Direct Ship Reorders placed Wednesday 3/4 through today will experience delivery delays. In addition, some customers’ weekly shipments for 3/11 on sale will be delayed 24 hours. These customers will be notified via email later today.
Please bear in mind that any weather-related impact also affects the nation’s entire transportation network. Therefore, we encourage you to remain in contact with your carrier to monitor shipments. For quick access to tracking information on the UPS website, we suggest accessing the Shipment Tracking page in the My Account section of Diamond’s Retailer Services Website. Once there, simply click on the tracking number of the shipment you wish to monitor and you will be taken to UPS.com.
We thank you for your understanding in this matter. If you have additional questions regarding this advisory, please contact your Diamond Retailer Services Representative.
