Effective March 1, 2007 Peregrine Outfitters will be shipping from a new warehouse in Ogden, Utah in addition to their facility in Williston, Vermont. The new western facility is in the Business Development Ogden (BDO) Industrial Park near several other outdoor industry vendors. Chip Martin, who has 12 years experience managing the Vermont warehouse will manage the Ogden warehouse.
All non-warehouse services such as sales and customer service will continue to operate in Vermont.
â€œWe felt this move is a natural step in our quest to offer expedient, cost effective shipments of books and accessories to our customers across the countryâ€ said Bob Olsen, company President. â€We want to be able to get ground shipments to most of the country in 1-2 days and 3 days to any other customers in the lower forty-eight states.â€
In addition to the new facility, Peregrine will change their order cut-off time from 12:00PM to 1:00PM customer's time. As of March 1st, all customers ordering by 1:00PM their time will have their orders processed and shipped that day!
The third new customer benefit announced is longer hours for sales and customer service. Beginning on February 1st, Peregrine Outfitter's phones will be open 9:00AM to 8:00PM EST, Monday through Friday. â€œWe are in the service business. We distinguish ourselves by helping our retailers keep their shelves stocked on an at-once basis. Clearly these 3 changes should really help our partner stores be more successfulâ€ Olsen commented.
Peregrine Outfitters distributes over 7,000 accessories and books to outdoor retailers.
