SA Regional Trip

It was great to get away from the office and head out for my annual 'South East' regional store visits last week. Normally, I get away on one of these regional trips each month, to different areas of the state (including NT once a year) and it is an opportunity to see which stores have created change to their offer that will help their business improve.

ALNA member stores visited over the busy 500 km each way two-day trip, heading to Mount Gambier via one route and back to Adelaide on another, which included: Keith, Penola, MGM, Fosters, Chapmans, Millicent, Robe & Williams Kingston SE. It was really nice to meet a couple of members and staff for the first time. It is always a pleasure to catch up with all of you who have continued your support and friendship over the years.

I had a dinner meeting on Tuesday evening with Director of iDropped it, Campbell Thompson, who was setting up 10 trial sites within S.A regional areas. This offer for members to become an agent for broken iphone and iPad screen repairs, with great commissions offered, plus other repair options. You will hear more about this very soon.

It is important to note, as a friendly reminder, that my role is not that of an Ancol Rep or other supplier partner being on the road visiting newsagents every day. There are many other aspects that are involved in his role which mean I am required to be on conference calls, attend government and supplier meetings or be in the office to assist with member issues. Be rest assured, that the entire team at head office in Sydney, and all other state managers, are working together for the channel and we appreciate your ongoing support.

My next annual regional trip and store visits will be in the Riverland area in October. More information and a dinner venue, probably in Berri, to follow.

Colin Shipton ALNA General Manager - SA/NT
