Newsagent has magazine supply contract canceled and wins award

Pendle Hill Newsagency has had their magazine supply contract canceled by Network Services Company because the owner did not complete a one week training course as required by the contract. While I am not about to get into the rights and wrongs of the Network decision, it is worth noting that the newsagent last night won an award at the Holroyd District Business Awards. They were nominated by their customers. So, the people who matter most to any business reckon that these folks are doing a good job. Whether they attend a mediocre industry training course ofr five days is irrelevant since there are other ways to measure if they are good business operators. Rather than unilaterally canceling the contract, decision makers might have benefited from visiting the shop first. ph.JPG

    Has there been a resolution on this situation. There must be more to this than just not attending a course.

    The situation has not changed as far as I know. I’ve chased it hard and have been told that the decision was made because of the training course. Mark.
