Storm Season

Hurricane Sandy battered the tri-state area last month, with unprecedented damage to property and businesses. The clean-up promises to be long and costly, as well. We want our customers to know that we’re ready to help in any way we can. If you need a messenger-on-demand, trucking, supplies shipped, logistics, or any kind of help in the five boroughs and/or beyond, call us and ask how we can help.

Call Us Definitely

We’re not sure if it was the remnants of Sandy or some Halloween goblins, but the telephones here at Breakaway have been playing tricks on us.  You can now reach us at 212-279-5024. You can also fax an order to 212-947-3335 or, easiest of all, visit our website at to place an order online and get all the latest information. 

Thank You!

 It’s coming. Can you feel it? It’s the quiet thunder of that yearly calorie-fest known as Thanksgiving. Turkeys and casseroles and candied yams and beer and potatoes and beer and cranberry sauce and beer. Did we mention beer? It’s a feast fit for a king. Luckily, as monarch of your house, you can order Breakaway to deliver all your Thanksgiving needs to your door. Except live turkeys. You’re on your own for that one.

 Do It!

That most important of all times in the USA is coming up, the right to exercise your franchise and vote. Breakaway urges all our friends and customers, from all ends of the political spectrum, to peaceably assemble at the nearest voting booth and cast your ballot. You can short-sheet your opponent’s bed afterward.  

Blah Blah Blasé

As we look around, especially in suburbia, it seems that there’s a sameness to everything. Target, Best Buy, Whole Foods…Target, Best Buy, Whole Foods. Where’s the variety? Does everything have to look the same?

Quote of the Day

“Innovation is pretending to be innovative.” For all you literati out there. 

The Extra Mile

Actually, that should be “last mile.” What exactly does this mean? It means that if you are a retailer, and have items that you want to deliver to someone, Breakaway can be your “last mile” deliverer, making sure the item gets to the customer. We already provide this service for Patagonia. If you’re interested, call our sales department for details. All the cool kids are doing it.

Stump the Band

Last month we wanted to know what Nikola Tesla invention was crucial for automobiles. Answer: The humble spark-plug.
