Have you heard? Loaded Lumber co-owner has gone viral!
Loaded Lumber co-owner, Jillian Cannan, came home from the Buffalo, NY flagship location in early June to dozens of packages on her porch from Amazon. At first, Jill was certain that Colleen Pandy, her business partner, had sent packages for the studio. She soon learned that was not the case.
As it turned out, Jillian was not receiving business supplies for Loaded Lumber, but instead was being shipped thousands of plastic face mask inserts - and she hadn’t ordered them.
After calls and emails to Amazon didn’t reveal who the original purchaser was, or how many boxes were still coming, she took to the media. Jill’s four children have really enjoyed being in the spotlight, and used their recent mention on Jimmy Fallon, to gain some attention with their peers.
