Crownhill Packaging is pleased to present the Best Omni-Channel Retailer Award – Large’ to ‘Best Buy Canada’. Best Buy entered Canada during the era before the E-commerce explosion, but has quickly adapted to the digital world of commerce, creating an extensive online catalogue and focusing its marketing efforts on supporting digital promotions especially on Cyber Monday. By keeping its eyes peeled for online trends and utilizing the data available from its massive social media following the company has been able to gain great brand resonance among businesses and consumers alike.

The sponsorship of this award is dear to Crownhill Packaging, as we have had the pleasure of assisting many omni-channel retailers varying from startups to multinational corporations in providing full service packaging solutions. From corrugate shipping containers to custom foam and bubble cushioning, Crownhill has been able to protect products of all shapes and sizes, from the manufacturing centers to living rooms across Canada and United States.

Crownhill Packaging Sponsors 2018 Canada Post E-commerce Innovation Awards

By | Announcements, Sponsorships | No Comments

The Canada Post E-commerce Awards have become a staple of Crownhill Packaging’s sponsorship efforts and we are proud to once again be a part of them in 2018.

Our sponsorship of the awards show enables a celebration of a year of organizations large and small, pioneering big ideas in the realm of e-commerce. From startups creating shockwaves throughout entire industries, to established players adapting to new realities and facing the challenges that come with them head on. These ideas come with great risks, and affect not only the companies that commit to them, but provide a valuable learning experience for many others that can apply what’s being done to their own strategic plans.
This year Crownhill Packaging is honored to be the sponsor of the ‘Best Omni-Channel Retailer Award- Large’ that recognizes corporate leaders who are committing to innovation in the e-commerce realm, utilizing their digital presence to support their brick-and-mortar stores and vice versa. Over the last year many large, historic retailers have suffered due to their resistance to the changing nature of retail itself, but these retailers have embraced change and used it to strengthen their brand position. This ability to adapt, and cohesion between the business of clicks and bricks, is a value Crownhill Packaging holds dear to its corporate identity. Crownhill has a continuing commitment to improving its digital presence, and utilizing technology in new and exciting ways.

These are the Categories and their respective Finalists for 2018.
