success is all about location. Crown Mailing Center stores are all
located inside WalMart Supercenters, the largest bigbox retailer in
the World. The traffic in front of each store is a minimum of 25,000
to 30,000 customers per week. Would you like to have 1.5 million shoppers
pass your store annually? This is an outstanding franchise opportunity!
Center was formed over 13 years ago with the idea of "A Store within
A Store". In the span of those 13 years over 300 mailing centers
were opened. The company started with Hallmark Card Shops having a mail
center in them, as the founders are both Hallmark retirees. The concept
has since expanded to Department stores and Chain Drug Stores. Today,
there are over 220 Longs Drug Stores operating mail centers under the
Crown Mailing Center umbrella.
Crown Mailing Center has taken the position that a customer wants choices. If a customer goes into a UPS Store or a FedEx/Kinkos store, you are given only one option. Crown stores offer UPS, FedEx, DHL & U.S. Postal services. In addition to offering shipping choices, a Crown store offers the widest range of shipping supplies and are experts with all packing situations.
Technology and Support
Crown Mailing Center has had in operation for over seven years a comprehensive support network including live phone support, internal chat networks, and remote desktop applications. As changes in the industry occur, a store operator or associate needs immediate help, whether it's shipping information or hardware or software technical problems or questions. We provide continual training and service so that your business can focus on the needs of your customer. Additionally, we have an in-house developed Intranet website that allows you to compare and communicate with our growing community of new store owners.
The dynamics of our stores within WalMart are that they are approximately 1000 sq/ft and located across form the cash registers on the food side of the store. This is important, because the food customer shops the store in excess of two times per week. All of this is so important because the shopper of today is always looking for one-stop shopping. WalMart's management supports the development of the mailing center within it's stores because it gives their customers a service that they want and need.
