Sand is a hot item for proactive newsagents

sandThe sand we ordered a while back has been on the shop floor this week and selling very well. I never thought I’d have customers buying a 5kg pack of sand. It’s terrific.

We have the sand in a floor display unit on the lease line – in our kids area. Notice the sand they can play with!

I am thrilled that sand is attracting new shoppers to the newsagency. Some of these shoppers then browse the store and purchase other items.

I’d suggest newsagents get into it but suppliers are out of stock as early adopters spend above expectation.

    I cannot get my hands on enough of this! We sold out our first order in 4 days and has grown in the space of 6 weeks that we now have cartons arriving every week. Shipping is expensive initially but now we can order over $1K it gives the free shipping which is great.

    Can anyone provide me with their contact details. Their website they direct you to for becoming a seller does not work properly and their email address just seems to bounce back as spam.

    A phone number would be awesome if anyone has it.

    How is their service/delivery times?
