Retail World has been a major resource for the operations and marketing teams at Drakes Supermarkets.

Over the years, it has provided inspiration and direction for innovative and creative ideas that have kept the company at the forefront of the industry, in terms of store and department refits, product ranging and general retail intelligence.

I regard the Retail World as the only retail magazine that predominantly focuses on the supermarket industry and it is read by all our executive and store managers. We always look forward to the next edition coming out so as we can be kept up to date with new products in our industry.

What a journey Retail World! Congratulations on your 70th anniversary of reporting on the supermarket, liquor and retail industry in general.

We cannot underestimate the contribution Retail World has made to our industry. It’s a much read magazine and your reporting team write without fear or favour. You have always called it as it is – something often lacking these days in other publications.

Better still, you are not just after the negative stories. I have enjoyed reading the many positive articles not only about independents, but about the supermarket, liquor and retail industry in general. It’s easy to write a criticism these days and it is very refreshing to see positive and pro active articles written about this fabulous industry we all work in.

I look forward to continuing to read your magazine in the months and years ahead. I hope l am here to celebrate your 100th Anniversary in what will seem like no time at all.

Congratulations to the entire team at Retail World for 70 outstanding years of reporting.
