    We have been there twice now, both early morning deliveries (5 am & 6 am) and have gotten out of there within two hours each time. There are lumpers, but that is the case with most grocery warehouses/DC's. It's nice to see such quick turn around time. It will be interesting to see if we end up with a weekday drop there again (one weekday and one weekend drop so far), as the weekday drop we made was basically a "cattle call", which made truck stop parking lot games look tame by comparison!

    All in all, not too bad of a place to deliver to!

    Piggly wiggly Bessemer is good. I was there last week and was shocked to see a lumping company in there. The were real old school where they used to have guys outside the gate on the cb offering up there services. Independent type guys.

    Piggly Wiggly, and Winn-Dixie for that matter, have closed a bunch of their stores in recent years. Last time I was at W-D in Montgomery it was like a ghost town in there. They ought to be able to get to you quickly since there isn't much going on.

    Can only be a matter of time before they get gobbled up by Kroger or Publix. Hopefully the latter LOL.
     
    Lilbit Thanks this.

    The 9 hour reload was t-shirts. We picked up sweet potatoes in Mississippi this week.
