PostNet Announces First Integrated Support Centre In Metro Store
RICHMOND HILL, ON, Jan. 14 /CNW/ - PostNet, the Ultimate Business Support Centre, is pleased to announce the planned opening of the first PostNet location inside the Metro grocery store located on Appleby Line in Burlington, Ontario.
A recent study by Mezzanine Consulting showed that consumers and small business owners are busier than ever and looking for one-stop shopping solutions that simplify their lives. By integrating courier, mail and printing services into a Metro store it makes it even easier for people to perform several tasks in one convenient location.
"The store within a store model has been successfully proven in the United States," says R.J. (Rob) Anderson, PostNet Canada CEO. "We've taken it up a notch by introducing graphic design and Xerox printing services in this smaller footprint to match the solution of our standard retail location."
The Burlington Metro location will serve as a test model for the store with a store model. The planned 460 square foot PostNet store will be conveniently located at the front of the Metro near the checkout counters. It will offer Purolator and FedEx shipping services, and be a Canada Post Authorized Business Centre.
"Metro is continually looking for new ways to enhance our customers' shopping experience and we feel a PostNet outlet offers additional services that many people would use on a regular basis," said Dave Spry, Vice President Business Services, Metro Ontario Inc.
PostNet is the ultimate business support centre. The company has grown to more than 900 franchises throughout North America and abroad and is working towards a goal of 1,500 global franchises within three to five years. Myles Franchise Corporation is the Canadian Master Franchisor for PostNet.
