STORE is back in-person on May 31/June 1 from the Retail Council of Canada – come and join us!

From the latest in consumer behaviour and retail operations, to the future of big picture issues like sustainability and the metaverse, STORE covers it all!

With core retail sales up 7.7% YoY in 2021, followed by Jan/2022 up 8.2% YoY and February up 5.4% YoY, retail in Canada is definitely back. Yet challenges remain, from labour shortages to supply chain issues, inflation, and the unpredictable impact of global geopolitical issues. While top line growth is healthy, what will the impact be on margins? With consumers now used to the convenience of ecommerce but showing new and unpredictable buying behaviour, how can supply chains be managed to meet demand? With both candidates and consumers increasingly focused on large scale societal issues, how do retailers define and communicate their positions, and then demonstrate their commitment?

Finding the answers to these and other key questions requires a thorough understanding of the current retail industry situation, combined with knowledge of changes and trends within both consumer sectors and larger scale issues. And staying on top of current operational issues while keeping an eye to the future is vital for success in retail. On May 31 and June 2, the Retail Council of Canada’s STORE Conference will provide you with an unparalleled opportunity to do just that, giving you the chance to learn from leading retailers, consultants and vendors about all these topics and more.
