Dear Parkland Community Business,
At staples it is our core mission to help you work, learn and grow, and in these uncertain times we are more motivated than ever to help you succeed, support your associates and support your customer with a wide variety of tools and resources.
Having been deemed an essential service by Provincial governments we have modified our businesses and been open through the COVID-19 pandemic in an effort to best support our two biggest demographics; the local small business operator and educators. While the country has been in a virtual lock-down mode these past 6 weeks we have been operating with modified hours, increased and thorough cleaning/sanitizing programs and a commitment to the maintenance of strong Social Distancing guidelines; far surpassing any Federal or Provincial recommendations. We have also instituted contact-less curb-side pick-up which has allowed us to continue to serve the community with the greatest care possible.
With most Provinces working on staged plans to re-start local economies I thought it timely to reach out and remind you that we are here for you. Whether it is help with getting you the signage you require to live up to Provincial mandates, Promotional products that advertise your brand while providing partners and customers with useful keepsakes (think branded hand sanitizers for instance) or Digital Marketing support to help you maximize your on-line traffic opportunities we are here for you. Returning to business will also mean a re-vamping of Health and Safety manuals; a task that we have some mastery in and can commit to professional work done in surprisingly quick turn-around times.
If supporting your business restart simply means comparing notes and getting a feel for what works and what does not work based on our recent experience servicing clients during a global pandemic I urge you to give us a call so that we can help you and your team get back to business as quickly and efficiently as possible.
While the current COVID-19 situation has sent the world reeling as we struggle to respond and protect ourselves and our communities it is important to remember that every challenge has opportunities attached to it. It’s time to be nimble and to chart a course forward. We are here to partner with you to do just that.
I hope that you and your family remain safe and that you are looking forward to building a bright future.
General Manager, Staples Canada
