The latest jam-packed edition of The Fed includes all the latest industry news and advice for independent retailers.
The front cover focuses on the launch of our 2019 Independent Retail Report (page 20-25), which took place during a reception in the House of Commons on 14 May. Hosted jointly by MPs David Hanson and Laurence Robertson, the event provided the perfect opportunity to keep the plight of independent retailers at the top of the political agenda. The report lays bare the challenges facing our members, including issues such as retail crime, business rates and the news supply chain.
We catch up with membership and recruitment manager Beverly Turner, who tells us more about the NFRN’s exciting new recruitment scheme (page 12-13) where members can earn £75 for every retailer they get to join the NFRN.
We look ahead to our forthcoming Annual Conference (page 16-18), which this year will also play host to our biggest and best Trade Exhibition (page 15). Taking place at the Hilton Metropole Hotel in Brighton, the exhibition will provide members and non-members with the perfect opportunity to engage with suppliers and pick up some amazing deals and free goodies!
Exhibition Opening Times
Sunday 16 June: 12:30 – 18:00
Monday 17 June: 08:00 – 16:30
The issue also includes a review from Spring National Council (page 42-45), we meet the latest brands to support our Brands of the Century (page 38-41) initiative, and there is advice on how to grow your home news delivery business (page 50-51) during the summer months.
