Look out for your new-look Convenience Store bursting through your letter box soon.

The radical new design will make its first appearance in the next issue, dated March 6, but will still contain your favourite mix of news, features and products plus Dear Jac, the independent retailers' champion.

You can get your first glance of the new look at the Convenience Retailing Show at Birmingham's NEC on March 1-3, with postal copies being distributed during the same week - so please come along and pick up a copy, and meet the team as well, on stand E70.

Also at the show we will be launching our bread and milk guarantee pack in partnership with Robert Wiseman Dairies (stand B60) and Warburtons (stand G81) - all the material you need to give your customers total confidence that your store is the number one destination for essential products.

It's all part of the added value of your new-look Convenience Store, the small store sector's favourite fortnightly.
