Some Positive Changes at Send The Light
Two announcements this month at Send the Light (STL) that are of interest:
First, there have been changes to the free freight program. For Canadian stores, the 20-unit book free freight program is now showing as also available with a 30-unit total order:
- If your order contains at least 20 shippable units of books & Bibles the whole order will ship Payment Free Freight. (Shippable means that out-of-print and no-longer-carried items do not count towards the number of units.)
- If your order contains at least 30 shippable units of any mix of products then the whole order will ship Payment Free Freight.
(I should add that as of this morning, my own account cart was still showing as needing X number of books or X dollar amount, which is actually a mixing of the new U.S. and Canadian offers. I’m assuming they will tweak this as time goes on.)
Second, they appear to be adding the Great Value Books inventory to the main warehouse. An email this morning took me to this link, where the first tab takes you to specials at up to 92% off.
In light of developments this month at Ingram/Spring Arbor, this is certainly positive news. It’s nice to see a supplier reaching out to help stores and not hinder our mission. If your store isn’t purchasing from STL, now is good time to open an account.
