Among the long list of exciting updates that were covered at World Conference, the SHOP Local program was one hot on everyones mind. In the middle of Marc Ashley’s presentation, he got in to the nitty gritty of the program and really shared all of the incredible updates to the (only one year old) program!
At International Convention, the team promised that there would be over 10,000 stores part of this program. They have hit that number and it is growing! Marc shared additional stores that have been added to the program including stores like Edible Arrangements, McDonalds, Wendy’s, jiffylube and more!
Marc also shared that SHOP Local is now in Hawaii and the list of participating stores there. There are tons of stores available in every city, in just one year, and “it is just starting to pop”. There are now over 11,000 stores part of the SHOP Local program and counting! We heard testimonials from UnFranchise Owners who are already loving the SHOP Local program and how they are taking advantage of it. With this program, it makes the Shopping Annuity truly a lifestyle!
Marc then brought up Eddie Alberty, VP of Strategic Partnerships, the true energy behind the success and growth of the SHOP Local program! “SHOP Local is a game changer, it funds your Shopping Annuity and it is something that no one else has”. Eddie explained how the program works in a few simple steps –
