Computer Store Wins Online Advertiser Award
The Fanshawe College Computer Store has won the Campus Retail Canada (CRC) award for "Best Online Advertiser" for the second year in a row.
The CRC announced the award at their annual general meeting on Monday, June 6, 2011. Memorial University of Newfoundland placed second, while Toronto's Seneca College placed third.
CRC is a purchasing and networking group of institutionally-owned computer stores from across Canada.
More than 30 campus stores belong to the organization, whose mandate is to provide their schools, faculty, staff and students with quality computer products at competitive prices.
"One of the prerequisites for the Best Online Advertiser award is that participating schools must regularly showcase vendors on the store website," said Dave Smith, Manager of Retail Services at Fanshawe. "The executive director [of CRC] and her staff felt that Fanshawe has done the best job at advertising our vendor partners."
Smith credited Retail Services Clerk Heather Buckingham with special mention for ensuring timeliness, proper ad placement and adherence to the program.
