• We're Ready for CAMEX 2015!

    02/18/2015 — Leah Palnik

    Every year the staff at PartnerShip spends months gearing up for CAMEX, one of our most important trade shows. CAMEX is the collegiate retailing industry's largest trade show and educational event, attracting more than 2,100 qualified buyers from more than 1,060 campus stores as well as 750+ exhibiting companies. The show is about to kick off in Atlanta and we couldn’t be more excited.

    As the endorsed shipping partner of the National Association of College Stores (NACS), we always play a large part in supporting this event every year. Through the NACS Shipping Program, PartnerShip helps college stores and vendors save on their shipping costs with FedEx, UPS Freight, YRC Freight and other reputable carriers. CAMEX is a great place to meet with members to learn more about their business and find ways to help them with their specific shipping needs.

    We’ve already been busy helping CAMEX exhibitors with their shipments to the show and we’ll be there to help when they ship their materials back as well. We also ran a special promotion for attendees. By shipping incrementally more shipments compared to last year during their fall returns season, they were able to earn up to two free registrations. 27 stores won at least one registration and it was great to see so much participation!

    As in years past, we will also be serving complimentary coffee and cookies. It’s our way of treating our friends in the industry and saying thank you to our customers. If you’ll be at CAMEX, make sure to stop by booth #3740 when you need a quick pick-me-up!

  • CAMEX 2014 - Thanks for the Memories!

    03/12/2014 — Scott Frederick

    CAMEX 2014 Picture2PartnerShip® is a leading shipping solutions provider to small businesses across North America and - as the only endorsed NACS and CAMEX shipping provider - the college industry remains an important customer segment for us. That is why we annually have a large presence at CAMEX - the collegiate retailing industry's meeting place for the past 80 years.

    CAMEX 2014 was especially important to PartnerShip as we celebrate our 25th Anniversary this year. Once again, we sponsored opening night on Friday, hosted a special customer appreciation party on Saturday night, and used a coffee bar style booth to serve up coffee and cookies on the trade show floor Sunday through Tuesday.

    Here are a few video and picture highlights from this year's event.

    CAMEX is a great way for PartnerShip to say THANK YOU to our many college industry customers for their business and loyalty over the past 25 years! The following video/slide show contains pictures submitted by numerous college stores that either attended our 25th Anniversary Customer Appreciation Party at CAMEX 2014, or those that visited our 25th Anniversary College Store Appreciation website at www.PartnerShip.com/25years

    PartnerShip also has shipping programs and services for non-college industry small businesses, retailers and suppliers. With over 17,000 active customers across North America, our customer base has become very large and diverse. We ship everything from shoes to auto parts, and everything in between. So, if you're one of our many non-college industry customers, we want to say THANK YOU for your business as well. In fact, if you visit www.PartnerShip.com/25th, you can watch our short thank you video and sign-up for some fun prizes we'll be raffling off throughout the year.

  • Third Annual National Student Day Coming in October

    08/19/2013 — Scott Frederick

    National Student Day LogoFor the third consecutive year, our nonprofit parent organization - the National Association of College Stores (or NACS) - will be sponsoring the National Student Day. This special event encourages college stores across the U.S. and Canada to celebrate and connect with their students and customers on October 3, 2013.

    Additionally, National Student Day offers vendors the opportunity to gain direct exposure to the student demographic through advertising on the official National Student Day web site, as well as enhanced branding when companies imprint their logo on all offered merchandise.

    More than 1,500 college stores participated in the 2012 celebration - and there are already more than that signed up to participate this year.

    Even though we have greatly diversified our book of business over the past few years (we now work with over 100 different associations and trade groups and tens-of-thousands shippers across many industries), PartnerShip still has strong roots in the college retail industry. It was almost 25 years ago that PartnerShip was created by and for college bookstores around the country - and we proudly continue to support the industry today.

    If you're a store, vendor or partner to the college retail industry, please visit NationalStudentDay.com to learn more about this awesome event - and mark your calendars for 10.3.13!
