Savannah Business Dealing with Smaller Delivery Window

Posted: Updated:
DOWNTOWN SAVANNAH -

Some businesses in Savannah are getting ready to deal with their biggest crowds of the year, but for the next four days, they less time to get their deliveries off River Street.  Outside the St. Patrick's Day Festival and Parade, merchants on River Street are required to get re-stocking materials inside and the delivery vehicles off the street by noon. 

Franklin Bradshaw, assistant manager at The Warehouse Bar & Grill, says the St. Patrick's Day Festival delivery deadline is a two hour loss compared to the normal deadline.  The new delivery time started Thursday morning. 

Bradshaw says the annual change requires some adjustments to make sure they have what they need. "I'm gonna have to do inventory every night as soon as we close and call-in that order in ASAP, because the first order they get is the first order they deliver and they have to be off the street by 9am.  So hopefully we can get the orders we need on Saturday and then again on Monday," said Bradshaw.

Delivery times for affected businesses will return to the normal Noon deadline after the parade in Savannah on St. Patrick's Day.  River Street is lined with shops, bars, and restaurants, making it an iconic and popular stop for tourists in the Hostess City year-round.
