We've had a few occurrences of items purchased with P-Cards that were being delivered to the wrong address.  As you all know, items delivered to the University should be sent to the storeroom.  The correct address for the storeroom is 425 Baldy Street.  The storeroom is no longer located at 427 Baldy Street.  Please be aware that vendors can refuse to deliver items to the storeroom if it's not the correct address on their trip manifest...even though the buildings are right next to each other.  Incorrect delivery address means possible delayed deliveries for you.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Barb Rahn at 3-4831 or  Thanks!
