Another year is almost over and our industry is without doubt busy with back-to-school, which we hope will be successful for all players.
The economy is showing no signs of revival which obviously puts additional pressure on suppliers and retailers alike.
However, we have no doubt that our industry will “weather the storm” and be ready for an upturn.
As I have mentioned before, it is in times like these that being part of an association like shop-sa is so important.
But without a strong membership and funds it is difficult to stay relevant and provide the support needed.
The Board’s wish for 2020 therefore is to strengthen the membership base and keep working to further the interests of the industry.
For your information, please see the updated shop-sa benefit statement here.
