Friends from the media,
Ladies and gentlemen,
Good afternoon. Thank you for taking the time to join us at today’s launch of DHL SERVICEPOINT at FairPrice Xpress and Cheers.
As a growing convenience retail chain, FairPrice Xpress and Cheers pride ourselves in constantly innovating ourselves to provide convenience and value added services to our customers. As part of the NTUC FairPrice group, we leverage on the FairPrice system to deliver quality products to our customers.
With more than 100 convenient locations island-wide, we believe in bringing products and services that our customers need, right at their doorstep.
This new collaboration to offer DHL SERVICEPOINT at FairPrice Xpress and Cheers will further enhance our promise to bring convenience to our customers. For a start, we will offer DHL SERVICEPOINT at 12 FairPrice Xpress and Cheers outlets island-wide. Customers at these outlets can now ship documents and packages at these locations.
FairPrice Xpress at Choa Chu Kang Way is also the latest FairPrice Xpress outlet to be upgraded into a 24-hour Drive-thru Grocery Mart. To provide convenience to our highly valued customers, this outlet now carries a more extensive range of products including items such as premium cheese, frozen meat and even fresh vegetables. This Grocery Mart concept caters especially to customers who prefer grocery shopping on the go.
Since we announced the FairPrice-ExxonMobil Alliance in 2005, it has proven to be a strategic success for both FairPrice and ExxonMobil. Most importantly, our customers benefit from the alliance with wide range of products and services offered at all Esso stations. We are always looking for potential business partners to enhance our offerings. Today, we warmly welcome DHL Express Singapore as our new business partner. We look forward to many more exciting new ventures, to continuously provide the most rewarding shopping experience to our customers.
