The Ontario Convenience Store Association (OCSA) and PAYGOS have formed a strategic alliance that will provide Ontario convenience stores with the opportunity to order products from a centralized platform developed and managed by PAYGOS. The platform will provide convenience store operators with the ability to order all products that are available to the convenience channel from the top CPG, automotive, tobacco and beer companies when legislation is passed for convenience store sales. Brands will be able to market promotions and provide everyday low prices directly to the convenience channel while still using their trusted distribution partners for fulfillment. The convenience store will also have access to return unsaleable goods to brands that allow returns.
“ For many years the convenience channel has searched for a business partner that can coordinate programs and services for the thousands of family run convenience stores in Ontario.
