PML have a case deal change for Bond Street Classic 25 that will commence Monday 27th July.
The change will be for all stores which will make the case deal for Bond Street Classic 25 consistent across the country.
All targeted activity on BSC25 will conclude on the 26th of July.
There are some updated promotional changes from next Monday 27th July.
Summary of the changes:
Increased rebates on Parker & Simpson 20’s, 25’s, 30’s and 40’s. The increase in rebate will be paid deferred and the amount payable will be calculated on the lower of compliant scan or direct purchases.
JPS 26 are also put on.
To further support the promotion during the current tracking period, Imperial will be revising each stores’ allocation to accommodate for the potential sales growth.
The method is based on each store’s sales performance (15/06 – 12/07) of Parker & Simpson TMC, with a 20% increase on their Parker & Simpson sales.
Therefore if an outlet has a total TMC allocation of 500 cartons for the 5-week period 26/06 – 30/07 (equivalent to 100 cartons per week) and their weekly average Parker & Simpson TMC sales is 30 cartons, they will have an additional 6 cartons (20%) added to their current allocation. As this is during the last week of the 5-week tracking period, their new total allocation will be 506 cartons (refer to table below):
These allocation increases will also be added and applied to the next tracking period of 4-weeks commencing 31/07 – 27/08.
Please note that time for July buying incentive is running out next Friday. Last chance to earn the additional $5/000 TMC and $7/kg RYO.
