In April, postmaster Sid (Avtar Sidhu), from Kenilworth joined Karl Oliver from the Retail team and others, to represent Post Office at the prestigious Retail’s Best Forecourt & Convenience Partners event 2019.
Sid explained why he attended:
“Retails best is a one of a kind event. Different to other trade and industry shows. I've been coming for the past four years. Always find it energising, great content, on point discussions supported by industry key partners such as the Post Office. Always have taken something away to add value to the business.”
Sid also gave the Retail’s Best organiser this testimonial to include in their materials, explaining the benefits of having a Post Office to complement his convenience store.
“Adding a Post Office turned our convenience store into a convenient store. The Post Office remains as relevant today as ever, it offers an exclusive point of difference and a commercial edge to your local competition. Many new customers are now converted regulars, who add significant spend on our retail side. If you are looking to add just one service to your store, think Post Office first.”
The event allows retailers and senior representatives of big brands in the convenience sector to meet potential customers and partners, identify new leads to help grow their business, while seeing the latest trends and innovations in retail. The theme was Forecourt and Convenience Partners, relevant as many Post Offices are now based in convenience stores and petrol stations.
Members of the Post Office Retail team attended, including Karl Oliver, Head of Commercial Partnerships. Watch this short video of the event which features a short interview with Karl Oliver: Retail’s Best 2019 Event Video
The event was also attended by postmaster Paul Cheema, from Nisa, Malcolm’s Stores, Lime Tree Park Post Office. The Retail team would like to thank Sid and Paul for giving up their time to come and represent Post Office.
This is just one example of how we are working together to help make Post Office even more relevant tomorrow than it is today.
