“You are cruising along and then technology changes. You have to adapt.”
In the rollercoaster world of retail, never has a truer word been spoken. Stand still and you won’t just get left behind, you could disappear completely.

- ever-evolving consumer habits
- increasing employee expectations
- relentless online competition
- rising business rates and wage bills
