Some retailers will remember the Retail Development Group (RDG) that team of volunteers worked so hard to support the industry that they managed to create the Jersey Retail Association (JRA) giving Jersey its first full time dedicated retail representative. A year on and the JRA’s work has finally secured the long-term sector champion that members have wanted for so many years. The JRA will change from an association to provide members access to all its benefits without charging a fee. The JRA will become Jersey Retail, still with the same clear goal of giving its members a combined strong voice, championing the sector and providing hands on support and resources. Jersey Retail becomes part of Jersey Business in June, benefiting from the team of tens wealth of experience. The AGM is a chance for members to celebrate this milestone for the industry, and plan together what members want Jersey Retail to focus on over the next three years.
