With a new survey by RGDATA showing that 95% of retailers have fallen prey to crime
during the past 12 months, this month’s issue takes an unflinching look at the crime epidemic
affecting retailers and the judicial changes needed to tackle this scourge.

Elsewhere, as certain fruit and vegetables become harder for Irish retailers to source, Julia
O’Reilly reports on what’s at the root of the issue. Retail space designer Ciara Petty
discusses the key trends emerging at present, while Fionnuala Carolan explores the factors
behind retailers’ current difficulties in securing staff. Retailer Jewel Akber also discusses his
latest Mace store in Bettystown, Co. Meath and extraordinary career trajectory to date.

Within our Advisor section, Colin Gordon looks at advertising’s role in today’s marketing
mix, The HR Suite’s Caroline Reidy outlines all the steps needed to successfully conduct a
probation review and Excel Recruitment’s Nikki Murran shares her thoughts on how to
cultivate long-term employee loyalty.

As always, our category features provide an in-depth look at the brands and innovations
generating sales in-store, with this month’s issue focusing on the baby, sustainability, roll
your own (RYO) tobacco and dairy sectors.
