Date: Tuesday, October 2
Subject: Food Photography Article

Dear Ms. Bellandini:

I have some news regarding your article that is scheduled to be published in the next issue of Delicatessen Magazine. — [1] —. Yesterday, we learned that a major advertiser canceled their contract with us, and as a result, we will have to reduce the number of pages in our upcoming issue.

We know that readers have enjoyed reading about your experiences in Italy. 7 [3] #. While your eight—page story about working as a food photographer is excellent, in order to fit in the slimmer issue, it will need to be cut by about thirty percent. Although I sincerely hope you agree to having your article published in our upcoming issue, I will understand if you would rather have the article published in full at a later time. However, I have to let you know that the magazine industry is not always the most stable business, and for this reason, I do not know if there will be space for your story in the future. — [4] —.

Take note that the Information Center at the main entrance will remain open during construction.

Construction was postponed for a time because of an unanticipated problem related to the ground conditions on the site. However, the problem has been resolved, and the 40,000—square— metre centre should be fully operational in June. The grand opening is planned for the fourth or" June. The warehouse has a special area with state-of—the-art equipment to store foods that need to be kept frozen or cool. The site will also include loading bays and offices.


The distribution centre is expected to create more than 400 new jobs, according to Myles Simler, Vice president of operations. Because of the size and scope of the project, a variety of jobs will be needed, from warehouse loaders and drivers to clerical positions.

Dear Myles;

Thanks for giving me a lift to the grand opening earlier this month. I do not believe I have ever seen such a well-planned event. We should send Ping Chen something to show him our appreciation for organising it.


Now that the centre in Cardiff has been open for a few weeks, I think we should consider hiring a company that forwards automatic notifications to employees’ mobile phones. Such a service would allow us to get messages to them quickly and also prevent mistakes with shipments. I have a contact who has worked in customer service at Calls For You. I think it’s a good company, but Raven Notifications also looks good, and their rates are lower. I have attached information about both companies to help you decide Which one we might use. Let me know what you think.
