Preview the June / July issue of NZ Retail magazine

If you’re a subscriber of The Register’s print magazine, NZ Retail, you should receive your copy any day now. For our extra-large June / July issue, we revealed the 32 winners of The Retail Hotlist awards, and delved into retailing in the regions; destination retail; and succession.

Cover story: The Retail Hotlist

Remember voting for The Retail Hotlist’s finalists back in April? Well, now you get to find out who won.

The Retail Hotlist is NZ Retail and The Register’s first-ever awards programme. With the help of our friends at Gem, powered by Latitude, we combed the retail landscape for every spark of innovation and had our readers vote for their favourite finalists across April and May.

In this feature, we’re presenting the 32 winners in a 19-page extravaganza. The 16 People’s Choice winners were based on online voting, and 16 Judges’ Choice were selected by judges Sarah Dunn; Scott Fisher and James Blackwood. Each winner is profiled in a case study.

Striving and surviving in heartland New Zealand

We first examined what it’s like to retail outside of New Zealand’s main centre in 2015, but since those gloomy days, optimism has been rising in the provinces. For this follow-up feature, Catherine Murray interviewed Paparoa’s Empire Arts and Collectables; FreshChoice; Tauranga’s Our Place and Ooplah!; Hawera, Gore and Porirua’s mayors; Wairarapa’s Freedom Kids; and Nelson’s Home-lee about innovating, profiting and building great businesses outside the big smoke.

Destination retail: Luring shoppers to your store

Some retailers have such enticing stores that they can locate anywhere they like and still draw shoppers to them. Sarah Dunn finds out why this traditional retail format is newly relevant to today’s market, and profiles Nelson’s Eyebright and Matakana’s Morris & James.

Successfully succeeding

A good company leader can make it seem as if they’ve always been there, but what happens when they leave? Courtney Devereux spoke with Scarpa; Vend and Cotton On about how they’ve managed recent major successions.
