Well, it was unintentional, but it appears that I have taken the summer off from blogging.
Anyone in the store fixture business knows that this is the most important and busy time of the year. If its not happening now, its going to be a long cold winter.
Fortunately, we have been extremely busy this summer and continue to diversify our business with new and exciting customer/partners and programs.
We’re very proud to have Joe Doan join the customer service team to help out with Shoppers Drug Mart and the new Beauty Boutique program. Joe brings with him a wealth of experience from wood and metal fixture manufacturers both here and in Thailand. Joe will make an excellent addition to the team.
We’re fortunate to have been selected by Fortinos to help them develop a new section of their stores. This is an exciting change of pace for them in the revitalization of this successful brand and we’re happy to be a partner in this.
The Pet Valu program is going very well. We’ve ramped up our inventories in a matter of a few weeks and have supplied 10 stores to date with many more on tap. This partnership has us providing 99% of the elements within a new store including installation and is an excellent showcase of the single source solution.
For the hockey fans out there, the Longos family are making an exciting new addition to the fleet in Maple Leaf Square. This site has some great new twists on an already successful brand and will be worth the trip to the ACC to experience it.
That’s all for now, hockey and soccer with kids is going well, congratulations to junior Morris’ Black Stallions for winning the championship game in summer 4 on 4 hockey with a convincing victory. The real season begins soon.
