Bloomingdales blog Meet Dave & John - Our guys in the warehouse!

Christina has a chat with Dave & John to find out what goes on behind-the-scenes in the Bloomingdales Warehouse (socially distanced of course)!

C: So how long have you guys been working at Bloomingdales?

J: Roughly 7-8 years now. I’ve lost count…
D: Just a bit longer, probably coming up to 9 years now!

C: What does a normal day in the warehouse look like for you?
J: It varies from day to day really. I usually get in early and read the paper before the day starts. Once Dave finally gets in, we mostly work on quality control, booking and dispatching orders for the day, dealing with any complaints that come through too! Lunch is also an important part of our day!! 


See John grabbing some products from our warehouse upper level. 

D: Yep that just about covers it! I also do a lot of wiring and repairs in my “office”.


I took a quick shot of Dave working on our Lila Table Lamp - Magic happens here he says...

C: Which piece do you think you have sent out the most during your time here at Bloomingdales?  
J: It used to be the B230L, the Bronze Crossover Floor Lamp …but now we’re sending out so much Visual Comfort! 
D: I think it was actually the B254L, that Timber Floor Lamp! Don’t you? Seemed like we had one going out every other day!
J: Oh yeah that was also really big!! 
D: But yes, I agree with John, we definitely send out much more Visual Comfort items these days. 

C: Since you deal with our products daily, as well as unload all of our brand new pieces as soon as they land, which piece is your favourite from our new range of Visual Comfort?  
J: Hmmm tough choice…probably the Triple Clarkson Floor Lamp
D: Oh yeah that one's pretty cool! Brass or Black John?
J: Definitely the mixed Black with Brass one!
