EPE celebrating community spirit with Lawsons!

Community spirit is often a large part of the success of our independent retailers. Often residing in the heart of their communities, they benefit from having strong bonds and loyalty within their customer base.

One of such independent retailers is Lawsons in Devon; with four stores in Plymouth, Totnes, Tavistock and Ivybridge.

Liz Lawson, Managing Director, Lawsons celebrated 25 years of service this year at the family business; she spoke to Bira Membership Magazine this month to discuss how business has changed in the last few years and how they have adapted to new needs of their ever changing consumer base.

On catering to customers in her community she states:

“Ever since my great-grandfather Tom Lawson opened a tool shop in Plymouth in 1904, Lawsons has always been bout listening closely to customers and what they want. Last year we revisited our business purpose and concluded we exist for our communities, help local people create beautiful homes”

You can read the full interview in the November/December edition of Bira Membership Magazine.

It really speaks highly of our independent retailers and their commitment to keeping their communities flourishing; adapting and changing to their ever changing customer base whilst also maintaining that grass-roots knowledge of their local area that makes them an integral part of many communities up and down the country.

EPE hope to continue to work closely with all of our independent retailers, and supporting them by supplying quality, durable branded products, offering advice or market insights and merchandising to help them succeed.

A Thank You from Mind

This week we received a letter from Mind one of the two charities we raised money for last month and we would like to share the letter with you all.
 
On behalf of Mind I wanted to thank you and your colleagues at EPE International for your generous donation of £498. We are incredibly grateful for your support. With your help, we can help people like Adam:
 
“Without Mind I wouldn’t be here today.  Mind helped me see my positives, my strengths and how my future wasn’t as solitary and scary as I had thought.  They helped me turn my life around and manage what I now know is my bipolar.”
 
Please pass on our thanks and gratitude for nominating Mind and donating to us as your support will help us improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding of mental health issues. 
 
Last year, our network of over 140 local Minds in England and Wales supported 390,000 people through services such as counselling, back to work mentoring, and therapy. More than 60,000 people spoke to our dedicated helplines, and 16.7 million people visited the mental health information pages of our Mind website. 41,000 people received direct support through our online community Elefriends, which users describe as ‘life-saving’.
 
We hope to continue working to help such worthy causes as Mind in the future and are grateful that there are charities such as these working so hard to support and improve people’s lives.

Supporting Our Independent Retailers

At EPE we believe that our relationships are what truly matter. Whether it be with the brands; the retailers or our internal teams. Maintaining those relationships is an integral part of our core values as a business. As part of maintaining those relationships, we strive to go above and beyond to offer our retailers with more than just quality products.

Will Yates, Managing Director, Groupe SEB UK & I puts it best in his interview in the October/November edition of IER Magazine: “The Independent sector is an area which we would really want to support more, their survival is after all critical to our communities, however they have to offer points of difference to ensure that they remain relevant.”

It is important to us to offer a service that does more for our retailers; by offering them support in the form of market insights, merchandising and advice on market trends and how they can play to their strengths with what they have.

We encourage all of our independent retailers to reach out to us for advice and insight and our teams will always be happy to support them.

EPE’s Fundraising Bonanza for Children In Need 2019, featuring Special Guest Judge Steve Marsh from Tefal!

The EPE team has really been getting into the fundraising spirit for Children In Need 2019 with an in office Bake Off style competition; where the participants had their creations judged in a blind taste test on taste and appearance by our special guest judge Steve Marsh, Channel Controller for Groupe SEB; who very kindly also purchased some of the cakes after the competition to aid our fundraising efforts for this wonderful cause.

The winner of our Bake Off competition was Sophie Stead, Purchase Controller at EPE; with Natasha Copeman, Head of Internal Sales and Debra Nichols, Internal Sales Manager – Electrical Wholesalers coming in at a joint second place. Take a look all of the delicious bakes below.

After the competition the cakes were then sold in our head office, as you can imagine they were sold pretty quickly. The fun didn’t stop there; the team also took part in the Annual Children In Need Duck Race Sweepstake 2019; the competition was rife. With prizes up for grabs and the motivation to do some good for a good cause everyone was eager to cheer on their pun-tastic duck to the finish line. Though in the end the duck known only as Beakwell Tart won the race, albeit without its cherry and Iwona Grabowska, Accounts Administrator won the sweepstake.

In total the EPE team raised £251.08 that will go to the Children in Need charity.

Here at EPE we’re always looking for ways we can give back to the community; watch this space for more fundraising activities on the run up to Christmas!
