Online Lobbies and Bluegrass

I have two big projects that I am currently working on for expanding our seafood realm.

First, I have been working on building Gurnet Trading Co.'s online store. We currently have more than a dozen of our great products, including live and cooked lobsters, for sale online. We have customer's that visit us every summer and come from all over the country, now they can get their favorite seafood shipped direct to their doors. 

Right now we have the basics but will be adding more as time goes on. We have been shipping our lobsters and products for years, but we never had the capacity to ship more than a box here or there for the odd customer who comes into the store and wants to ship lobsters to their mom for her birthday. Recently we ramped up capacity by adding more lobster tanks and storage for packing materials. Our goal is to be able to bring the great taste of Maine and our home cooking to those who can't come to us.

Second, I have been preparing for a big Gurnet Trading Co.  first. We will be selling live lobsters and taking orders for travel and shipping at the Bluegrass Festival at Thomas Point Beach during Labor Day Weekend. We will be there with Zach's Lobster Bakes, who will be serving up a classic Maine feast of lobsters, clams, corn, potato salad, cole slaw and blueberry cake.

Stop by the festival and enjoy some great music and local food!
