El Niño interrupts the normal delivery of Watkins products
As some of you may know, the All Natural Country Store makes home deliveries to customers living in our home base of Big Bear Lake, CA, as well as our bedroom communities of Irwin Lake, Sugarloaf and Whispering Forest. But for our customers across the country and Canada, UPS is the dependable carrier that will deliver Watkins products to your front door.
The employees of this professional organization seem to perform miracles, getting an order from the Watkins production plant in Winona, Minnesota, to its destination point in about a week. But this year has been an exception because of El Niño, the vicious storm front that has moved across the country, flooding entire communities, destroying homes, over-turning vehicles, and – yes – even killing individuals. The last thing the affected families are worried about is the timely delivery of their Watkins orders.
The other factor that has impacted our weather has been global warming. While some actually deny the phenomenon exists, Southern California has seen temperatures in the teens, while northeast citizens are jogging in Central Park. This weather has impacted the outdoor public events of the country store’s sales representatives. We managers of the store have suggested to our representatives that they plan ahead by stocking up on the most popular Watkins products. They also receive free shipping on orders of $100 or more, plus a five percent commission. The other suggestion we make is to remain in contact with their most frequent customers. Something as simple as a phone call can go a long way.

Of course, we like it when our customers call us. Just dial 888-881-7372, and we can place your phone order the same day.
