WEEKLY  NEWSLETTER UPDATE

MAY 1, 2017

 

 

OPEN: 7 DAYS A WEEK

MONDAY- FRIDAY: 10-6

SATURDAY: 9-6

SUNDAY: 10-5

Hi Everyone!
Well, so much for the 100% chance of rain and thunderstorms we were suppose to have this past Saturday.
It’s too bad the meteorologists just couldn’t get it right this weekend because Saturday turned out to be a nice day for everyone to enjoy. The storms didn’t arrive until early Saturday evening and many customers decided to cancel their orders on Friday because of the forecast for the weekend.
Severe weather did come later in the evening and became really dangerous in areas outside of the metroplex.
The storms that came through the metroplex late on Saturday evening left us very wet but ended up destroying other areas east of us. People in the Canton area were hit with tornadoes and flooding and further east and in south Louisiana flooding took over some cities and the Crawfish farms.
With all this happening, the Crawfish farms were hit really hard. All the farms are flooded and we are hoping that the fisherman can find the Crawfish traps so they can get ready for this upcoming weekend.
This coming weekend just happens to be the largest Crawfish Festival weekend of the season. This festival is being held in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana.(Crawfish Capital of the World) Thousands and thousands and thousands of pounds of Crawfish will be consumed by so many people.
Many people don’t keep up with this type of information and many people don’t realize how mother nature can change the direction of a business. With this type of damaging weather and with the unbelievable demand there is for Crawfish, it’s actually amazing the season stays open as long as it does.
Here’s another one, Shreveport is having their Crawfish festival on the weekend of May 25-28. Right before Memorial weekend.
With so many Crawfish festivals happening in Louisiana during the month of May and with the season already having a difficult time keeping up with demand for Crawfish, supplies are starting to be a big problem.
Remember, Memorial Weekend is right around the corner. Get your orders reserved now so you won’t be on the end of the list. Those who wait until the day before a major weekend to order may find out that you waited a little too long.
So, when I mention over and over again how important it is to call in and reserve your order, I am not trying to push you for an order. I just don’t want you to be left out if there is a shortage on anything you need.
Now, with all this being brought up, our Crawfish Suppliers are telling us that #1Select Crawfish are basically no longer to be found in any kind of quantities. So, I am telling everyone that #1 Selects are on a first come first serve basis. If you have an order already on our books for Selects, I will do my very best to secure these for you but since there is a shortage on the big crawfish and if I cannot get enough of the big ones, I will automatically change your order to a washed and graded crawfish. This grade includes some #1 Selects but also has a mixture of other medium to large sizes.
Also, since I am the largest Crawfish supplier in the metroplex, I have four major suppliers that take care of me. They have all told me the same story on the issues at the farms. So all I can do is just cross my fingers and hope that these farmers can come through for everyone this weekend.
