Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Grocers take wait-to-see attitude toward milkmen's 3-day weekend By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer Lethbridge still somewhat sceptical about only four days of milk delivery each are taking a wait-and-see attitude to the change' that gives milkmen a three-day weekend. Hong owner of Bonnydale said he ran short of some types of milk. He simply didn't have the cooler space tc stock sufficient amounts of the different types and sizes of milk to meet the needs of customers He said there were definitely more milk customers on the weekend since dairies and the provincial government agreed to allow milkmen to work Thursdays and Fridays for both home and retail milk deliveries Milkmen haven't worked Wednesdays for several years Mr. Wong said he will work along with the trial period for a while to see how it affects his business before taking any steps to better his service Doris Jang of Henry's Grocery said she didn't run out of milk because she took extra stocks Friday Ann owner of Kobal's said she took extra stocks on Friday so didn't experience any shortages during the weekend. But next weekend causes her some concern Besides the lack of deliveries Saturday and small stores especially will have to remain open without milk deliveries a civic holiday. Mrs. Bavais said it will take two or three weeks before stores will be able to determine what stocks of milk to order for weekend sales She said the shorter delivery week shouldn't cause any problems during the summer because many people leave for the weekends anyway. Ron owner of Ron's said it is top soon to tell how the shorter delivery week will affect his business. Because he has extra cooler he feels the weekend was just like any other weekend with sales of lots of milk of all types and sizes. He claims the good service provided by the dairies will eliminate any problems If he runs out all he has to do is call the sales manager at the dairy and he can get more milk. Herman manager of Palm Dairies Ltd. in said retail sales won't be affected by the shorter week until school resumes this fall. He said many people go on holidays or out for weekends during the summer and that takes the pressure off. He kept a girl in the office during the past weekend just to monitor the telephone switchboard. There were only eight calls and most of them were just enquiring about the delivery situation. Al manager of Silverwood Dairies Ltd in said most people seem to accept the short work week quite well He said drivers told people on their routes about the change and letters were sent to all retail customers Mr Wiggins said there could be some problems in deliveries for a short time but deliveries should be regulated once the program is fully implemented District SECOND SECTION The Letlibridfie Herald Aldermen eye .3 million July 1974 Pages 11 to 20 City gardens 1 will be judged Friday you guess what they're portraying Amateur gardeners in Lethbridge have until Wednesday to submit an entry to compete m the an- nual grounds and garden sponsored by the Lethbridge and District Horticultural Society Seven categories of including yards 50 feet wide and yards more than 50 feet new composite yards gardens and land- vegetable unusual yards and com- mercial yards will be judged Aug 2 Stephanie a competition said all city residents can submit entries to her at 726 22nd St N Entrants do not have to stay home for the long weekend to have their yards she said.
