Postal Connections to open service center in Walmart
Bend Postal Connections Franchise Owner Pete Pierce announced today the opening of a service center inside the Wal-Mart SuperCenter at 300 NW Oaktree Lane. Opening Thursday, April 20, the arrangement will fulfill customers’ routine requests for a one-stop packing, shipping and comprehensive business service center where they shop. Postal Connections Express™ will be located directly next to the east entry into the Walmart SuperCenter.
“The joint business arrangement represents a tremendous commitment to customer service and satisfaction by both brands,” said Pete Pierce, who has owned the local Postal Connections in Bend at 2660 NE Highway 20 since 1998 and who was recently awarded the 2016 Top Sales Award for the entire Postal Connections franchise network. “The world’s largest retailer is seeking to improve convenience for its customers. At Postal Connections, we are constantly evolving our business to ensure that customers are receiving top-notch services that make their lives easier.”
The new Postal Connections Express™ in Redmond’s Wal-Mart SuperCenter is the brand’s second location in the city. There are currently three full service Postal Connections locations in the Redmond-Bend Area. In addition to the Postal Connections on Highway 20 in Bend there is a store at 61149 South Highway 97. Redmond also has a Postal Connections at 916 Southwest Rimrock Rd., which is known for high levels of personalized service.
A grand opening celebration for the new Postal Connections Express™ in the Redmond Wal-Mart is slated for May 3. The Postal Connections stores within the giant retailer will offer convenient access to postal products, shipping with the leading carriers, freight, printing, creative services for print, copying, fax, passport photos, notary, shredding and other services. Currently, Postal Connections stores are adding iSOLD It® on eBay as a sales assistance service for customers to drop off their items that are sold online with all the work being done by Postal Connections. Customers are sent a check for the proceeds when sold.
This arrangement is part of a tenant agreement signifying Postal Connections’ remarkable franchise growth initiative aimed at extending the company’s presence by the end of 2017. Postal Connections stores have a reputation for high levels of customer service, which the company plans to add inside Wal-Mart SuperCenters. Beginning April 2017, in addition to Redmond, Postal Connections Express™ stores will begin appearing in select locations across the country inside the giant retail chain.
With 41 locations across more than 16 states currently, Postal Connections is opening additional stores similar to those now serving Redmond and Bend across the United States and inside Wal-Mart SuperCenters. As Postal Connections expands, the brand is awarding franchise opportunities to qualified individuals who share the company’s commitment to be fully involved in the business, who will follow the proven franchise model and who will be dedicated to superior customer service.
For individuals and small teams looking for professional independence, Postal Connections is an opportunity to own your own business often driven by the goal to build a family business or to develop a bridge to retirement. The proven franchise model provides structure and opportunities for growth. Military veterans are offered deep price reductions on start-up cost.
“For those looking to make a greater investment, Postal Connections offers multiple-unit ownership with operating tools to manage many units and build a strong brand identity,” said Fred Morache, co-owner and COO of Postal Connections, and a renowned veteran of the franchising industry. “Our franchise opportunity offers unlimited growth for individuals or groups seeking to be involved in a business that truly has an impact on the day-to-day lives of our customers.”
