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.
