A few months ago, I was scrolling through Twitter when I came across an invitation for small businesses to enter a Pick n Pay competition called Boost Your Biz. The prize, for 25 companies, was to become a supplier to Pick n Pay.
Not rating my chances too highly, but being an incorrigible optimist, I entered. Imagine my surprise when we were selected as part of the top 50 and then part of the final top 24!
What followed was a whirlwind process of training, presentations and more learning than I thought I was capable of. We were taken to Cape Town, we met incredible people like Suzanne Ackerman and others. And, in the process, us 24 small business owners became firm friends.
Then, finally, we launched our products into Gauteng Pick n Pays this week.
Phew. 🙂 🙂 🙂
This is the list of Pick n Pays that the products are in, so far.
