TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY HALLMARK STAYS WINNING WITH CVS SOLE SUPPLIER POWER PLAY!!!



Here's a bit of corporate talk for the late night that deserves more than a bit of consideration because it features a Kansas City company fighting for survival and reportedly winning the battle.

To wit . . .

TKC TIPSTERS TELL US THAT HALLMARK JUST SECURED A HUGE DEAL AT CVS!!!

This bit of nice news is important because we're soon to enter greeting card season and and it's always nice to get a check or some cash from old school relatives who still have some manners and remember to send cards that FB messages and e-mails always struggle to replicate.

Accordingly . . . We're putting this on blast because we haven't seen this anywhere else but it's good news, slightly edited but still offers a peek at a Kansas City company making real world progress. Take a look:

A win for Kansas City: Hallmark wins as sole CVS supplier

Beginning in early 2019, the 4,400 CVS stores . . . Should begin converting their greeting card departments to the Hallmark brand. When the conversion is completed, Hallmark will (could???) be the sole greeting card supplier for more than 8,000 CVS stores . . .

"The CVS contract is estimated to be worth more than $3.5 billion over the life of the agreement," . . . "We won this business because we are focused on aggressively pursuing new distribution by providing customized retailer solutions and by proving Hallmark's performance advantage over our competitor."

When added to the CVS win, in 2016 Hallmark has accumulated more than $4 billion in greetings contracts.

Kansas City residents keeping their jobs?

That is good news.

You're going soft TKC. This actually seems like a headline that's rooting for the people of Kansas City.

Uh oh, promoting paper products into 2019?! All the climate kooks are not gonna be happy. Barry, DiCaprio, Gore, and the greenies galore want us little people to cut carbon footprints. Paperless banking, tweet, text, wipe yer bum with a fig leaf if you care enough...while the beautiful people jet between yuuuuge homes and vacations.

Also, is this like Trump coming to town again? Never gonna happen?

Trump has been here more than a few times. A lot of you guys are out of the loop. Is he coming back? Let's hope so, we need Missouri to support him and push him over the top!

This is great news, I can pick up a nice card for my nephew while I'm getting some depends to crap my pants at the next family gathering. Oh what a convenience! I won't forget some pocket tissues as well. Sometimes Aunt Bessie's chowder gives me the double time squirts!

Donald Trump warned that he would retaliate if more lewd tapes were released,

which means

there are more lewd tapes.

Reminds me of an old SNL: Not Ready for Prime Time Players skit about all the manly men on the manly ship doing manly things.

10:50 Assume much? Anyone critical of Hill's supporters AUTOMATICALLY vote for Trump, huh?

Borrow HER's blue glasses--you're dizzy. If that doesn't help, guzzle that hot sauce from HER's purse so your buttlick tongue will be "no wayz tahred".

Prior to this deal Walgreens, which has more stores than CVS, carried Hallmark Cards. Now the word is that Walgreens will be switching to the number one selling greeting cards, American Greetings. So someone explain to me how this deal is going to help Hallmark in the long run. They just lost more counter space than they gained through this deal.
