Reminder that PML HAVE NOT implemented any monitoring of stores as we approach the next excise duty amendment for September 2022.
Commencing Monday 22nd August all Diamond+ stores with PML will receive an invitation to an upcoming PML Brand Academy. Details will be shared next week so watch out for an eDM from PML.
The Brand Academy will be held on Wednesday 31st August from 6pm-6:30pm.
Exciting news for TSG stores in Brisbane and northern NSW. PML are re-opening the Brisbane DC effective and operational from the 4th October.
This means PML will be able to move away from the 48 hour lead time (order to delivery) and revert back to next day, 24 hour delivery.
Below is the proposed Philip Morris process but could be subject to change at which point we’ll advise:
WC 22.08 – Portal Alert advising of upcoming changes without specifics
WC 05.09 – Portal Alert advising stores of specific order > delivery schedule changes and Portal Banner applied to homepage (Brisbane outlets only)
WC 03.10 – SMS Alert (1 Day from Order Day) advising stores “Your new order day for Philip Morris is Tomorrow”
During the process, within the Philip Morris Portal Alerts and Banners the messaging will remain active to ensure that all stores have this a reminder to the upcoming change.
