“As MD of Musgrave Wholesale Partners I’m very aware of the value Retail News brings to our business and our teams. Whatever the subject you can be sure of a comprehensive and up to the minute view of what’s happening in the retail sector and what drives the decision making of our retail customers. From a personal point of view, and in my capacity as a past President of Appeals for the Irish Grocery Benevolent Fund (IGBF), I’m very grateful for the wonderful support Retail News and in particular Kathleen Belton have afforded this important charity over many years. Their numerous articles, advertisements and features have served to raise the profile of the charity and in no small way, encouraged colleagues in the industry to give generously”.
Noel Keeley,
MD, Musgrave Wholesale Partners
