About the Gift and Home Group

The team behind the successful newsXpress marketing group is launching a new marketing group for independent gift and homewares retailers.

newsXpress currently serves more than 240 retail businesses in Australia. It is helping newsagents transition into gift, toy, homewares and other businesses depending on local shopping needs.

With sixteen years in business, and a terrific track record, now is the time to leverage the newsXpress supplier relationships and infrastructure for more independent retailers.

This new group is more behind the scenes. It is not about getting you to change the name of your business or how you operate.

We offer you access to a wonderful suite of business management resources as well as access to preferred suppliers who offer product access opportunities as well as price deals.

We bring to the table current retail insights from overseas where we connect with retailers in a range of niche channels: gift, homewares, toy, garden centre, collectibles and stationery.

From shop layout advice to lease negotiation support to theft mitigation assistance to visual merchandising skills, the Gifted and Home Group can help you on the shop floor, in the back room, strategically and practically.

There is no supplier requirement. If you join with us you have no obligation to any of our suppliers or their products. You are welcome to stock competitor products.

There is no requirement on EFTPOS supplier, POS software. There is no mandatory requirement on anything.

We think one of the most valuable offerings from our group is the support that we provide.

We have your back.

We would be there for you in times of challenge as well as opportunity from being a listening ear to a resource for practical help to knowing professionals who could help with any situation. We consider members of our group to be family and we care for them as such. Talk to any newsXpress member and they will have stories of unexpected help we have provided in a variety of situations.
