Order In AdvanceEdit
Unlike other wholesale vendors where you can walk up with cash and carry, BLO insists that you place a phone order a day ahead of time and come pick it up. First call them to request a price list. Then you can call back to place your order over the phone (they do not support electronic orders via email etc.) at least one day in advance.
Parking can be tricky. It's recommended that you bring change for a meter just in case, otherwise you can park directly in front of the warehouse and load up there. DO NOT block any trucks that are loading/unloading.
Picking up your orderEdit
When you arrive, all you have to do is tell them your name and that you are there to pick up your order. They will print out a copy of your order to review. Then you go upstairs to pay; Bring cash!!! Also, if you get there towards closing you can ask if they have any seconds or "bruised" fruit at a discounted rate. Sometimes you just might get lucky!
