sql 2008  data import problem

I am having issues with a daily import routine i have set up.
The idea is that our locations send their sales data back every day to our Head Office. This is dumped in a sql database. I then extract some of this data and import into another sql database which also houses our ERP solution. Our Erp package then processes the data and post sales invoices , stock used etc.
The problem occurs when there is a communication issue with any of the stores and we dont their data for a few days. My sql code just inserts yesterdays sales, which is fine if all the sales are in. In reality I have to run many small insert scripts during the week to insert data from stores that dont poll their data when they should.
I am trying to think of a more practical way to manage this. The first database gets updated automatically when a store sends their data, the second database doesn't. Instead of running my scruipt for yesterdays data, would it be possible to write a script to insert sales for any of the last 7 days if data has not been inserted already. This would allow for data coming in late (within a weelk anyway) Is this even possible?

Thanks for Reading

Is there any way you could set up an SSIS package to do this?  You could use a Slowly Changing Dimension task in your dataflow to insert new and update (or ignore, depending on how you want to do it) existing data.
