UPS Canada and The UPS Store Launching New Offer to Help Improve Success Rates 
of Small Business 
Small business offer provides convenience of choice 
OTTAWA, Nov. 5, 2012 /CNW/ - Small businesses in Ottawa will soon be able to 
access special incentives via a new small business offer unveiled by UPS 
Canada and The UPS Store. Demonstrating their commitment to helping small 
businesses survive and thrive, UPS and The UPS Store are setting out to 
reverse the current failure rate among early stage small businesses, which 
according to Statistics Canada, stands at an annual average of 90,000. The 
Canadian offer is part of various global initiatives by UPS to support small 
business in fostering economic growth worldwide. 
"All of the biggest companies once started as a small business, including UPS. 
We understand and assist with the tough challenges entrepreneurs face such as 
having to do more with less in order to grow their business and make a name 
for themselves," says Paul Gaspar, small business director, UPS Canada. "Small 
business plays a vital role in driving global commerce and economic growth, 
particularly in the Canadian context, so we want to do our part to help enable 
long-term success." 
This new offer provides an easy way to understand shipping costs with the 
added convenience of choice. Customers can take advantage of the offer 
directly with UPS and enjoy the flexibility of scheduling pickups online and 
dropping off their packages at any convenient drop-off location. Customers can 
also ship UPS through The UPS Store and enjoy the same offer on their shipping 
and packaging needs. Small businesses will save valuable time and resources so 
they can focus on what they do best. For more information on the offer,

"The great thing about this offer is that it makes it very easy for our 
customers to choose the options that fit the specific needs of their 
business," says Michelle Cameron, national marketing manager, The UPS Store. 
"Our franchisee owners approach logistical challenges and questions with the 
eyes of a passionate small business owner because they are small business 
owners themselves. This insight allows us to provide solutions customers need 
to take their business to the next level."
