Hotel Discount

In the event you don’t want to sleep in your truck sometimes, Mercer now has a 10% discount off the lowest advertised price at La Quinta Inns and Suites. They are offering 10% discount of the lowest advertised price. They boast over 900 locations currently but will have access to over 9,000 locations in a few months when the acquisition by Wyndham Hotels is complete. We will update you when that happens. This can be used for business or personal reasons. All you have to do is visit https://www.lq.com/en/clients/M3RCER?promoCode=M3RCER&stop_mobi=yes or www.lq.com. The code for the discount is M3RCER and can also be used to book by phone or in person. We hope you enjoy your stay.


Cheap Physicals

US Health Works is a nationwide medical facility that you may or may not be familiar with. They have three locations in the Louisville area and one of those is a 24 hour site. They offer physicals for $33. Cheaper than any others I have heard about.  Only the Louisville locations offer physicals for that price. Every penny saved as an owner operator is important so feel free to take advantage of it. As always, thanks for your hard work everyday and stay safe out there.


Season Parking Changes in Louisville

As usual, the end of the year will be very hectic around the Louisville yard with all the UPS activity. Please read the attached document for information regarding where to park when visiting the Louisville yard the remainder of the year. Parking guidelines are pretty similar to other years with a few minor changes. These guidelines will be enforced November 1 through January 6. Thank you everyone and have a safe day!

Flood wall in Louisville

Please be advised, if you have been to Mercertown in the last year, you are probably aware that we had access to the property behind the flood wall on 12th Street and Rowan Street. We did not buy that property. We were just leasing it, and Mercer is no longer occupying that area. All of our trailers have been moved to various places in and around Mercer. If you need to drop your trailer for an extended period of time please call the facilities department and see where the best location is to drop. We are working on a plan for the upcoming UPS season and will give details on that is they get clearer. Thanks and have a great day!

VETERAN'S DAY FUNDRAISER

The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund serves US military personnel wounded or injured in service to our country.  Supporting these heroes helps repay the debt all Americans owe them for the sacrifices they have made.  They are our nation’s greatest national resource and they deserve all the support that we can provide.

 

On Saturday October 1st we will begin our annual Veteran’s Day fundraiser with all proceeds going to The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.  This effort will last through Veterans Day, Friday November 11th, so you will have plenty of time to make your donations.  For your convenience, Staci Thomas, Debbie Hobbs or Libby Netherton will be happy to take your contributions.

 

For every $15 donation you will receive a Intrepid Fallen Heroes hat and every $20 donation gets an IFH shirt.

 

Thank you, in advance, for your contributions and your compassion.
