PROMOTIONS

PML

 

Three date extensions to the promotions that are currently running. Dates extended to 1st November on 3 lines – Bond street Classic 20s (NSW, VIC, TAS, WA), Choice Signature 20s (QLD, SA/NT) and Harmony by Choice 20s (ALL).

Digital Task Dates – These have been updated are per below, which means there is a task that is live this week to complete.
Updated task dates:
 

Task 1:  WC: 12th October – Digital Tasking Survey (Duration: 1 Week)
Task 2:  WC: 19th October – Brand Education (Duration: 1 Week) 
Task 3:  WC 26th October – Brand Education (Duration: 1 Week)
Task 4:  WC 9th November – Brand Education (Duration: 1 Week)
Task 5:  WC 23rd November – Brand Education (Duration: 1 Week) 

With the news announced last Sunday that stage 4 restrictions in Melbourne could be lifted on the 1st November, PML will be offering support to those outlets that were forced to close.
This support will include:

  • Extended credit applied to the first order for reopening. The offer will be an additional 7 days, therefore if you currently have 7 days you receive 14 days. If you currently don’t have credit terms you have 7 days.
  • PML will also offer off-day deliveries to eligible stores. Eligibility will be based on the day that restrictions are lifted and stores reopen. Any store who doesn’t have an order within 2 days of reopening will be eligible for an off day delivery.

The PML Victorian field team have been contacting the relevant stores this week that have been closed to get confirmation of your reopening date in order to confirm if you are eligible for off day orders. PML also have additional information on the PML Portal and an email to the stores that will be impacted.

Deliveries – Over the past 18 months PML has been moving away from a joint delivery arrangement with ITA. Some regions across Australia have already transitioned successfully with more to come between now and the end of November. These changes may have an impact to order/delivery days for stores that will be moved over in the coming weeks. PML will contact relevant stores on timings and possible changes to your order and/or delivery day.

Q3 Ranking Report

The purchase ranking report was sent to all stores this week.
For retailers that have not seen this information before it is a ranking of all TSG stores according to purchase information received from manufacturers, not scan, which we put together each quarter. Results for some stores will have been impacted due to being forced to close because of COVID-19 and/or if outlets do not have terms with a supplier TSG does not receive purchase data from that supplier.
