The latest jam-packed edition of The Fed includes all the latest industry news and advice for independent retailers.

In the final edition of the year, we reveal the finalists for next month’s 2020 NFRN Awards (page 38-45) as we continue our search for those retailers who have made an exceptional contribution to independent retailing in the last year.

Along with the latest NFRN and industry news, we have a round-up from the main political party conferences (page 20-23) which provided an ideal opportunity for the NFRN to keep the plight of independent retailers at the top of the political agenda.

There is a report on our visit to the new Smiths News call centre in India (page 14-15), where senior NFRN officials saw first-hand the new operation in action and how it will impact members served by the news wholesaler.

We also take a look back at our recent lobbying efforts and two key successes (page 30-35) for our Political Engagement team, while a Retail Crime Checklist (page 32) to help keep your staff and customers safe over the festive period is also included.

The issue also includes advice from The Retail Mutual on how to avoid accidents on your premises (page 36-37), there is a review from October National Council (page 46-48), and we meet the food and confectionery brands that were featured in our Brands of the Century (page 50-56) initiative.

Plus lots more!
