Maped Helix has launched their new Premier Partner scheme to help independent stationery stores improve sales and footfall, with positive feedback already received.
The new retail partnership will provide shops with a wide range of benefits including new point of sale material, exclusive bespoke promotions including fixing 'Back to School' discount levels, and the ability to purchase new products ahead of competitors. Retailers will receive full marketing support to implement the new initiatives that look to drive business forward with the brand.
Jay Guest, Director of UK Sales at Maped Helix said, "we have worked hard at creating a retail proposition that will genuinely resonate and excite independent stationery retailers and we think we have achieved this. The feedback from the first three partners has been hugely uplifting. The ultimate aim of the scheme is to drive footfall to each retailer by way of sampling, advertising and promotional activity."
Maped Helix are targeting proactive retailers to become Premier Partners who could have the chance to take part in the annual visit of the Marketing and Production sites at their Global Head Office in France.
The first three companies to sign up include Marple Stationery Supplies and Suttles of Malden.
Sarah Laker at Marple Stationery Supplies said, "my customers love the high quality of Maped and Helix products and come back time and time again to purchase their products. I'm delighted and honoured to be asked to be one of the first Premier Partners."
Andy Ross at Suttles of Malden added, "it is great to have a forward thinking supplier out there that is looking forward to how they can develop their business and that of their customers. By working together, we can create a better retail environment for the end consumer."
