Retra and CIH to work together

Electrical retail bodies to co-operate throughout 2008
Publish date:

Electrical retail bodies, Retra and CIH have announced that they intend to work closer together during the next year to help independent retailers across the country.

The deal will see the two bodies work closely on a series of issues that affect retailers to ensure that they have a strong voice and that they are properly represented.

It will be dealing with issues including Government legislation, problems with services, as well as the involvement of independent electrical and PC retailers in the launch of new products and in their associated marketing campaign.
