Got another question about special order, once again asked on behalf for my friend (who should really start paying me comission for all the typing and correspondence because she was too paranoid to register online ). So as you know, she's got some orders placed in the past and this July she's got other orders placed as well (lucky girl, she buys tons from several boutiques). She was told that one of her special orders was submitted through the Podium because apparently while previously they said that they submitted through the store back in February, it didn't get submitted (I'm a bit confused but so was she). Supposedly, this time it was submitted at the Podium. However, she was still told that it may be several months before they know for sure if the order was good. Here's where she was confused, she thought managers know immediately whether the order is good? Or does it mean that when an order is "ACCEPTED", it simply means that it was SUBMITTED or pushed through, and that you still won't know whether it's really GOOD TO GO until a few months later? She was told that for items that were rejected, Corporate generally notifies in a few months and that's how one knows whether the order is really truly good to go (as in if you don't hear a rejection in a few months, then it's good news). Uhm ... I think that's what she meant to ask, unless I misunderstood her ... oh well ... Experts, please advise. TIA.
