I run my own Vegan Online shop called Pink Piggy Lifestyle. My mum does the accounts and my fiance site maintenance and deliveries.
all the admin, shipping, orders and suppliers fall on me. It’s a lot of work, but at least something I believe in.
Dealing with suppliers can be incredibly frustrating. Some are super and I always get my stock on time. Actually most of them are like that. Then there is one supplier who stocks a large range of my vegan “meat”. They are always late. They never have enough stock. We need to drive 4km to collect our order and then sit there and wait as they are still packing it.
Today I get an Email saying my order won’t be ready tomorrow as they have a Market. This seems to be the excuse every time! I was also told that the markets will always take priority. I was one of the first people to stock their range and spend thousands in orders with them. Yet I am not a priority.
Unfortunately they have an excellent and very popular product range. Which means I can’t not stock them.
I am so sick and tired of always having issues with them. What the hell is wrong with people?!? When did they get so self absorbed?!?
