By | Awards, Congratulations | No Comments

During a sold-out gala at the Sheraton Center in Toronto, on September 20th, 2017, Canada Post hosted the sixth annual Canada Post E-commerce Innovation Awards. Category finalists and e-commerce industry leaders gathered to meet, recognize and celebrate the companies and start-ups that are moving e-commerce forward in Canada. Canada Post awards category winners received beautiful award statues, exclusive prize packages including shipping services, direct marketing offerings and marketing services, as well as valuable industry-wide exposure.

The 2017 Canada Post awards winners are:

This year’s Canada Post awards recipients were chosen by a panel of relevant and influential industry experts hailing from notable organizations including Google Canada, Facebook Canada, Deloitte Canada, CIBC World Markets Inc., and the Retail Council of Canada.

Crownhill Packaging is honored to have been able to sponsor the Best Omni-Channel Retailer, Small Award. Finalists in this category are smaller retailers that provide their customers an omni-channel experience in both their physical locations and online offerings. They differentiate their business and its intent by using cutting-edge technology and customer-based tactics to best service their clientele. This year’s winner for the Best Omni-Channel Retailer, Small Award was Rent frock Repeat, a retailer that enables women to rent high-end designer fashion for single events. Their online storefront provides online access to personal stylists as well as detailed measurements of both dresses and models.

We’d like to congratulate the winners at this year’s Canada Post awards. The strides forward made by each of these e-commerce businesses has greatly benefited us all. We continually look forward to seeing the accomplishments everyone will undoubtedly make in the future.
