Sneaky Skechers Cancels Orders Without Notice!

Orders placed on January 21, 2012 for the deal on Skecher’s Men’s Revine – Hopkin Cold Weather Boots advertised for  $3.00 and Free Shipping have been  canceled by Skechers without notifying customers via email.  Until checking their orders today, customers orders for the boots  were being “processed.’

Sure a mistake on a normally $88 boots was made, but it was made by them and they should stand by it since they run the risk of losing more customers and damaging their reputation for reliability and confidence.  And the sneaky way they have gone about reneging on the deal without any notification to the customer’s email account indicates how bad this decision was and is to their  public relations.

Eating Healthy In The Twin Cities

Food Co-ops are a great source for fresh organic food, but not all are created equal–some are more equal than others.  Seward Co-op, located at 2823 East Franklin Avenue, Minneapolis,MN, offers an array of fresh food and new products.  This store not only continues to offer spices and teas in bulk, has one of the best deli buffets where you can sample the hot before buying, but continues to look for new products worthy of their customers. MarkdownMom recently visited the Co-op and experienced a sensory overload to all the wonderful aromas and bright colors of its current inventory. Can’t find something?  Just ask their knowledgeable and friendly staff, but above all just enjoy!

MarkdownMom Exclusive: For those of us that have been looking for a local source of farro, MarkdownMom was told by the buyers at Seward that they expect to have a supplier in a month. Farro is one of the most nutritious grains and following the historic adage that an army marches on its’ stomach, this was the principle fare of the Roman Legions. Farro is usually soaked before being prepared, unlike spelt which it is often compared with, but also unlike spelt it remains  chewy not mushy when cooked. Farro is a very versatile grain and can be used in soups, salads, as a vegetable dish, or as a substitute for rice.
