Twelve shops, most of them West Coast-based, have made it through to the semi-finals in the $20 million review of postage and office services chain Mail Boxes Etc, according to consultant for the review, Rojek Cutcher Group in Cleveland.

After the San Diego-headquartered client called the review [WAMN: 28-Feb-01], more than 130 shops flagged their interest. The surviving dozen will receive new guidelines for proposals tomorrow, with the final shortlist due the last week of May.
