Another Wooldridges Closure

This announcement was sent to suppliers today:

 Dear valued supplier,

I am writing to advise you of the final stage of the east-coast restructure of the Education Works distribution business. Along with the closure of stores in Moorabbin and Magill, we have this week announced the closure the Jacaranda store in Canberra.

With this decision, the Education Works staff and product distribution will be based in Western Australia. We feel this is the best structure for our business to renew our focus on providing the best possible customer service for our customers throughout 2012 and ahead of the 2013 back-to-school program. We will retain a sales force in the eastern states but will no longer maintain a full-time retail shop presence.

Many of you will now have met with our new National Product and Marketing Manager – Tim Bradstreet. Tim will be spending more time with you in the coming months.

From May 2012 all deliveries should be made to our West Coast distribution centre at 426 Scarborough Beach Road, Osborne Park, Perth.

If you have any queries relating to specific shipments, please contact Glenn Gaudion, EWA National Procurement Manager at ggaudion@educationworks.com.au.

Thank you for your support during this period of transition for our business. We look forward to on ongoing partnership with you throughout 2012 and beyond.

Kind regards,
Kevin Healey
Executive General Manager
Education Works
