We’re all really looking forward to the annual Food Gatherers’ GRILLIN’ Fiesta Sunday June 9, featuring live music, delicious sausages, and a plethora of delightful diversions. It’s one of our favorite springtime events!
PLUS, as they say, “proceeds from Grillin’ enable Food Gatherers to distribute more than 5.75 million pounds of food annually to 150 non-profit programs serving people in need in Washtenaw County.”
It’s win-win, + BBQ.
Metro Delivery is honored to be officially noted by Food Gatherers as a MIGHTY CARROT PATRON this year for our continued support.
We’re lucky to be in a region where we have such a great local organization to support- just LOOK at their rating on Charity Navigator!
Get your Tickets! See you there!
On Saturday, 4/27/2013, Metro Delivery moved clear across Ann Arbor, from the Southside to the Wild Westside. You probably didn’t even notice, did you?
Because we always come to your place, and you don’t drop around as often as you should…
Eerily empty, isn’t it?
Yes, we even brought that coffin, left to us by the deadbeat coffin salesman…
Where we finally have a REAL LOADING DOCK, Hurray!
The move across town , although short in milage, was massive in the required coordination of our staff to keep all of our systems online, all of our technology enabled, and ensure uninterrupted terrific service for our thousands of weekly customers while we moved a phenomenal amount of equipment, furniture and assets and made the transition, without a hitch.
Kudos and appreciation to the Metro Team for this very critical and successful same-day delivery!
Yes, we’re moving to our spacious NEW OFFICES & WAREHOUSE this weekend.
Metro Delivery bids a fond goodbye to the Sunny Southside of Ann Arbor, MI and, heeding the advice of Horace Greeley, heads to the Wild Westside of Ann Arbor, MI, from whence we shall continue to service the Southeastern environs of Michigan- and beyond!
And we would like be clear, we are NOT PRESENTLY moving to India:
…we all got our hopes up that Management had more expansive plans than we’d been led to believe, this morning when we found the below(click for screenshot) website, which looks remarkably like our website:
Which shows that we’ve established branches in:
India! at 41/3, Mahatma Gandhi Road Bangalore Karnataka – 560 001
PHONE NUMBER: + 917411577135
2075 W Stadium Blvd Ann Arbor, MI 48103 (Metro Note: That address is a U.S. Post Office in Ann Arbor. We stop in, but they don’t let us stay there)
PHONE NUMBER: + 1 310 438-6497

PHONE NUMBER: + 44 703 195-3447

PHONE NUMBER: +234 8133969916
…Unfortunately, that website that you see above is just another bunch of interwebs criminals who’ve copied our proprietary images and are trying to “hook” “pigeons” for their shady we’ve-got-a-package-for-you-but-you-have-to-pay-some-fees-to-get-it scam.
All the above phone numbers etc. presumably allow you to contact actual criminals. We recommend that you avoid these weasels, if they should contact you.
…Anyway, Westside Ann Arbor is a good move for us.
LOOK OUT WESTSIDE ANN ARBOR METRO DELIVERY’S MOVIN’ IN!
But England would have been nice…
Nigeria would have been awesome…
It just goes to show, you can’t believe EVERYTHING you see on the web.
…It’s coming up in just a couple of weeks- Metro Delivery has been a Five-Star Member of the Express Carriers Association for seven or eight years, and we always appreciate the networking and educational opportunities presented at the ECA’s Annual Marketplace Event.
The Business Development Cowboy is a-loadin’ up his saddlebags fer a rip-snortin’ Texan time with a posse o’ other Transportation Professionals from across the country. Further dispatches to follow!
It’s a zippy logo, but instead we took the hat and put it on a penguin. Go Figure.
This funky old logo was used rarely, but it still makes us smile-
Metro was proud to donate delivery services to the Sphinx Competition this year.
Our friends at Morgan and York donated a gourmet lunch for all the musicians, and we did a fast delivery from Morgan & York in Ann Arbor to the Stage Door of the beauteous Max M. Fisher Theatre in Downtown Detroit.
From their website: The annual Sphinx Competition offers young Black and Latino classical string players a chance to compete under the guidance of an internationally renowned panel of judges and to perform with established professional musicians in a competition setting. Its primary goals are to encourage, develop and recognize classical music talent in the Black and Latino communities.
Congratulations to the Winners, and to all the great young musicians! We hear it was a fantastic show!
Did you know: if you have a webpage, any weasel that wants to can copy the images and content from it, set up a dummy site with a similar address, and start to defraud the public?
It’s true! Metro Delivery has discovered that some weasel has done just that to our website, again.
This time operating from the phony address of metrodeliveryintl.com, with a Chicago phone number, an unlikely address in South Yorkshire, UK, and an IP address of 18.104.22.168 , some sneaky malfeasors have copied our webpages and are running some kind of scam where they pretend to have parcels that can be claimed with, we presume, the payment of some kind of fees. We keep hearing from the poor hapless Europeans and Africans whom they’re stringing along, and we’re warning them off, but it’s kind of tiresome.
Here’s a screenshot of the scam metrodeliveryintl site (click on it to see it better). The Illinois phone number (312) 463-9232 seems to go to a pager, but that really is our 800 number below it. Those also really are pictures of us, because we don’t hire actors to pretend to be us on our website. Although we’re starting to consider it.
We’ve reported the activity to the Internet Crime Division of the FBI, sent them a cease and desist order, and have contacted their host- in Germany-, but the site remains up for now. So, just for the record, we are NOT affiliated with metrodeliveryintl.com, and we know them to be weasels.
We apologize for any confusion these weasels might cause for anyone- but there’s not much we can do about it beyond what we’ve done. Anything, any website that appears on a computer monitor can be copied and transferred over to a fake site. The internet is a giant weasel feeding ground.
