This month we say goodbye to summer and hello to autumn.
We’ve just released the latest Retail Radar report on the fourth quarter of 2016 – showing consistent growth within the sector, building on the small but positive trend. The results showed that 68 per cent of retailers met or exceeded sales targets over the quarter, with over 80 percent expecting to do so over the next three months. You can read the full report here.
This month we’re making sure you’re up to speed with Easter Sunday Trading changes, part time hours and more important advisory & advocacy topics, included in your March issue of Talking Shop. We also have offers from our Business Partners – OneMusic and Quest Apartments Hotels.
If you haven’t already entered the Top Shop Retail Awards yet, I encourage you to do so. It’s important to celebrate the success of your business and employees. Entries close 17 March, so make sure you get your entry underway soon. If you have any questions about Top Shop you can call us on 0800 472 472 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
