Newsagents have been sent packs of products to sell to raise funds for Daffodil Day with a request we put them at the counter – the most expensive and sought after location in store. Many newsagents have removed high margin products from the counter to support the fund raising for a good cause.
Unfortunately, the Cancer Council does not recognise newsagents for their valuable support. They thank Gordon & Gotch, the distributor of the fund raising products to us but not the newsagency channel of retailers promoting the event.
It’s disappointing since Coles gets a big rap and the cost to us is probably greater than what Coles is doing.
