With Marron I have the chance to meet a lot of people and one of the last encounter I made is Christine Ollier .
Christine Ollier is the leader of the OLETAL company which is located in Lyon .
OLETAL is a wholesaler supplies for shops and since some years OLETAL product paper bags personalized or customized
Appointment with Christine Ollier , I arrived at the shop and I introduce myself by saying that I had an appointment . A man welcomed me and said with great kindness I will inform Christine and it goes in the back room .
A few minutes later a woman comes to meet me wearing a broad smile.
In reading the project of Marron Rouge , she offers me to make a presentation of my products in her shop for all clients ( which could also be mine) . I find this very generous offer , and over all that a priori this is a first in this shop. Of course I accepted the proposal and appointment June 16, 2014 at OLETAL .
But I leave it to Christine to attend because I asked him a few questions.
Jean-Marc : Hello Christine Ollier . You are the leader of the Company Olétal that many shopkeepers know . Can you introduce yourself in a few lines and introduce your company ?
