HURRICANE IRMA UPDATE

Last week was challenging as we attempted to make contact with our 120 employees on three islands with very limited means of communication.  We gathered requests for supplies and started shopping to fulfill those lists of items to assist our employees get back on their feet.  We put together 120 employee hurricane supply totes and were able to send them out, with other hurricane relief supplies, on Saturday.  We filled six containers that were sent  to St. Thomas, St. Maarten and Anguilla.  I have attached a few photos below of our efforts to assist. 

Communication still continues to be a struggle on several islands but is getting better.  We have sent some building materials to our St. Maarten and St. Thomas facilities to start the repairs and will hopefully be sending more supplies this week.  Another hurricane is challenging us yet again, but we are persevering.  Our Anguilla team is preparing to reopen and we will notify you of the date.  Our St. Croix team is fully operational.  Our Florida facility is fully functional.  

We have set up a FACEBOOK page (Merchants Market) as a method of communication between employees/customers and our Florida office.   We will soon be using an Instagram account as another method of communication with our customers (merchantsmarket1967).  More info to come….


The coming days will bring all of us more great challenges.

PRODUCT OF THE MONTH

             

 

This month we are featuring the Wrapmaster Dispenser and Film.

The Wrapmaster is designed with tough, durable, hygienic ABS plastic for ease of use and quick loading of refill rolls. Its stainless steel cutting blade, concealed for safety, cuts film “Tangle Free” every time.  The foodservice industry is facing many issues today insuring ecological and environmental standards are being kept in maintaining hi-quality-foods as well as the proper disposal of all packaging products used in the process.

Wrapmaster is a free standing food film dispenser. The traditional method of using cartoned film, of which users had to dispose of after usage, has been replaced by just refilling the Wrapmaster with a new roll of film. This allows the ability to utilize 100% of the film rolls as well as eliminate deteriorating and unsanitary cartons to dispose of.

Simply refill the 100% hygienic – washable unit with your choice of film and use thousands of feet of film with perfect dispensing over and over again.

– NO unsanitary cutterbox cartons to deal with.
– NO corrugated cartons to toss.
– NO blades to dispose of.
– Guaranteed clean and safe. Cuts film right to the end of the roll.
– Film refill rolls in 18″.
– The refill rolls are packaged in a standard two pack brown carton which makes for easier disposal and is recyclable.

This month Merchants is offering the dispenser at a cost of $10!  Please ask your Merchants Sales Associate for information on 7405420 (18in Wrapmaster Dispenser) and 7405400 (18in PlasticFilm).
