3/5 – Diamond Home Offices Closed
Due to inclement weather in the Mid-Atlantic region, Diamond's Home Offices are closed for the day.
UPDATE, 3/5 – Shipping Advisory: Olive Branch Closed
Due to inclement weather in the Memphis area, Diamond's Olive Branch Distribution Center has closed for today as well.
Some Direct Ship Reorders placed yesterday were not picked up by UPS and will experience delays, while Direct Ship Reorders placed today will not be processed until tomorrow, at the soonest. Weekly shipments for 3/11 on-sale for customers serviced from our Olive Branch Distribution Center may also experience delays. We are hopeful that operations will be able to resume tomorrow, and will post additional updates here and via email as they become available.
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.
