These innovations can spell the difference between success and failure in an increasingly difficult retail industry.

Canny retailers — whether they be national players or localised specialists — understand the worth of relevant and timely professional advice in refining their business strategies and executing their plans. They know that the best advice is based on solid industry experience.


It is why so many successful retailers make KPMG their business and financial adviser of choice.
