Corporate Retail Comparative Report Set – 
Compare performances, inform your planning

This is where the pedal of retail strategy hits the metal of operational execution, translated into numbers – from the financial performance of each of the Groups, to growth in store numbers.

The Corporate Retail Channel Comparative Report Set covers South Africa's key economic indicators and then compares the performance of the major retailers in this context. As an economic report, it is one of the most comprehensive and practical of its kind in South Africa, looking not just at the indicators, but also what they mean for the shoppers and the businesses that serve them. As a comparative report on the respective performances of the corporate retailers, it is an essential tool for anyone doing business in this channel.

The Corporate Retail Channel Comparative Report Set together with the Corporate Retail Channel Dashboard provide all the information you need for targeted and relevant customer business planning.
