04/09/2021 "Early Italians" Delivery Upate

Posted by

We were able to load a day early, and so the Early Italian packages will be available for pickup starting Saturday, April 10th, from noon to 6pm.

Looks like it will be a good day to install them, with rain on the roof overnight as they settle in to their new digs.

We'll also be there on Sunday from 10am - 4pm.

Please note that we may set up a "drive-thru" lane, so be prepared for cones and a modified traffic pattern.
Sorta like we did last year.

As usual, we'd be grateful if visits for other items are kept to a minimum, and if you do need to pickup anything other than your bees that you order online ahead of time so we can try to have it ready for you when you come.

If you have any questions or need to make other arrangements, please email info@bee-commerce.com.

Thank you!
