2013was again a very busy year for us at Mann Lake. Our location in Woodland California has completed the move into a much larger facility which allows us to consolidate our inventory in one place. The new location is at 500 Santa Anita Drive which is directly across the freeway from our old location. The new full scale store front has allowed us to serve you much more efficiently. You can shop from inventory on the shelves, get assistance from Sales Staff when necessary and then proceed to the checkout to finalize your purchases. Staff is on hand in the warehouse to put together bulk orders that can be loaded quickly to get you on your way. Our new facility in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania is open and thriving. Located at 485 Stewart Road visitors can shop the full scale store front 7 days a week!
In July, we had the privilege of hosting a meal at our Minnesota Headquarters during the Minnesota Honey Producers summer meeting in Walker, MN. What fun we had! Great food, facility tours and a live band added up to a great afternoon! The Raptor Center from the U of M College of Veterinary Medicine was kind enough to give a presentation and displayed several birds for our attentive audience.
Our "Five for the Hive" proceeds for the first half of the year were presented to Marla Spivak of the University of Minnesota to help build their new bee lab. Thanks to our great customers, we presented a check for $10,000! The program continues into 2014 so be sure to look at the kits on pages 1 - 9. You too can help build the lab because we donate $5 for each of those kits sold!
In November, Jack and Betty were awarded the Distinguished Service Award by the California State Beekeepers Association for their time spent in serving the beekeeping industry. In 1986 Jack & Betty attended and exhibited for the first time at the California State Beekeepers meeting. People were friendly and intrigued if not a little skeptical if they would make more than a few years. Well they're still here 27 years later! The key to their way of doing business is to treat people like they would like to be treated and to listen to what people needed.
