Reject Shop card supply challenges

A Reject Shop in a major shopping centre has tons of empty card pockets. It seems an apparent greeting card supply chain challenge for the Reject Shop is unresolved. This would usually be good news for the newsagency nearby but they, too, face supply challenges.

On the one hand, empty pockets show which cards are popular while on the other hand, retailers can’t bank anything from an empty pocket.

    All too a familiar look is some newsagencies particulary ones of high turnover with Cards printed in China.

    I am led to believe that when Covid first started Hendersons started to print all their cards in Australia rather than oversees. It now results wtih normal supply from Hendersons while other card suppliers having great difficulty obtaining and distributing stock.

    As a result in my bushiness Hendersons have totally claimed the Boxed Christmas Cards.

    Henderson and Simson design and print locally and this provides their supply chain with certainty.

    I think other major card suppliers will do this, too.
