charitycards.JPGEven in the post Christmas sales, a charity connection matters when it comes to selling boxed Christmas cards. 

I saw one customer today purchase three boxes from us because we had cards which raised funds for the Peter Mac Cancer Centre.  This customer came in to buy a newspaper and struck up a conversation when waiting to meet a friend at the front of the shop.  The charity connection drove the purchase.
