With minimum unit pricing in force since 4 January in the Republic of Ireland, the topic dominates the cover of our January issue, with Fionnuala Carolan asking whether MUP will help reduce alcohol consumption, or merely force people to shop across the border?

Elsewhere, we highlight the extent to which retailers have been affected by Covid-related staff absences, and Retailers Against Smuggling explore the consequences of last year’s significant spike in major seizures of cigarette and tobacco products.

Our first issue of 2022 also includes several noteworthy store profiles. After creating an exciting new retail brand with Barnhill Stores in Dalkey, founder and manager Dave Whelan reveals how his latest venture has already exceeded expectations. Retailers Brian and Jean Malone of Malone’s Londis Ardee report they are delighted with the results of their recent renovation, while Roisin Harkin, manager of Nearby in Glenties, Co. Donegal, reveals what’s next for the store.

Within our Advisor section, Colin Gordon explains how a revolutionary approach to marketing could pay dividends; The HR Suite’s Caroline Reidy examines how employers can help support staff members as Omicron surges; and Barry Whelan highlights insightful learnings from Excel Recruitment’s latest annual Salary and Sentiment Survey.

As always, our category features provide an in-depth look at the trends, brands and innovations driving sales in-store, with this month’s issue focusing on the bottled water, cooked meat and vegan sectors.
