Reflections on True Value Spring Show

Mail Boss lands 17 more new accounts

Epoch Design was in attendance at the Spring True Value Market in New Orleans from March 27 – March 29, looking to generate dealer interest, bring on new Mail Boss dealers in True Value locations, and showcase new products.

truevalueshow09The Spring show in New Orleans had a very low turnout in comparison with previous True Value markets. With barren aisles, vendors were curious if any sales were going to come their way. Despite the low attendance, however, Mail Boss managed to land 17 new accounts – the best True Value show in Mail Boss history!

Why such success? The hardware store owners and managers who stopped to listen to our presentation saw the value in a quality security product that offers a solution to a real and growing problem: mail identity theft.

It seems that more and more people must be hearing about the prevalence of mail theft, because unlike at previous shows, very few people denied the fact that mail and identity theft is a nationwide concern affecting all areas – rural, suburban and urban alike.

With all of the product interest we garnered, combined with the massive market need for an affordable security mailbox, 17 new accounts seemed like the tip of the iceberg for the Mail Boss product potential. In the coming months, though, we will continue to deliver with confidence the Mail Boss high security mailbox as a true solution to mail identity theft prevention.
