Business visit to Tring Newsagents
What a fascinating morning we had visiting Tring Newsagents. One of the first things we found out about Tring Newsagents is that it has been a newsagents in Tring for over 100 years and first opened in 1892. A local historian presented the owners with a book of photographs cataloguing the history of the shop from 1925 until now.
Tring Newsagents sell a variety of products which are purchased from a wholesalers. They buy in bulk then sell items individually for a profit. the newsagents specialise in 'Newspapers' and offer an impressive service to it's customers by delivering 700 newspapers before 7.30 am everyday. Infact this is one of the shops USP's (unique selling point). It has had a big impact as a newsagents and is in the top 100 newsagents in the UK. With a lot of newpapers now available online they have noticed a slow decline and are looking at adding new items to their range and new ideas to make their money grow. Another USP is their customer service they offer a friendly, helpful service.
Along with a huge variety of products to tempt custmers the Newsagents also provides a cash and carry service to order. They do not have a website, instead they have a facebook account and advertise their weekly special offers which are very popular with their customers.
Inside the shops there are 8 monitors and security camers so that they can see every part of the shop.
Important things Tring Newsagents rely on for their business include the internet and a telephone. Without these their till system, bar code scanner and online payments would not work. For the business to be successful Tring Newsagents also rely on their Staff, who sort out the newspapers for delivery early in the morning as well as re-stocking the shelves and serving the customers throughout the day.
So much for letting us visit your business and sharing all this information with us. We have really enjoyed our visit.
