This month we are covering a host of topics with our contributors writing articles of interest that provide a great insight for you all. They’ve also given great advice as we all turn to social media and our websites which we trust you will find of interest and hopefully also informative.
For example, over on page 15, Yasmin Ali of the NSG is reporting a surprisingly upbeat response to the situation by independent retailers (you are all truly fantastic and have demonstrated once again that you are the backbone of our industry); John Barker as an independent retailer takes a look at the COVID-19 current lockdown in the UK, the impact this is having and how his personal ‘action plan’ came into force over on page 30 (and as he says, it’s time to hear the independents roar!).
Next we have articles focusing on social media and e-commerce, with Ross Hewitt stating it is imperative that we all stay visible online by perhaps creating online content giving pop-up videos illustrating demonstration of product and to ensure your website and social media accounts are updated regularly (page 34); while over on page 40, David Fairhurst of Intelligent Retail runs us through e-commerce and gives his advice on how we can ‘keep retail going’.
We also take a look at a variety of product categories, including, Compact Folds (page 20), Baby Carriers & Slings (page 32) and Nigh Lights (page 36).
Our cover hero this month is Ergobaby who introduce you all to the updated and redesigned for 2020 Metro Compact City Stroller. This stroller is compact and light enough to take you everywhere you need to go and tenderly designed for the ultimate in cosiness and care. You can read all about it by turning to page 16.
