BRC welcomes five new members
Jun '08
The British Retail Consortium (BRC) announced (Friday) that five new online and direct retailers have become members.

They are:
- asos.com
- Findel
- N Brown Group
- Otto UK
- Redcats UK

Stephen Robertson, BRC Director General, said: “I'm delighted to welcome so many new members from this fast-growing sector of UK retailing. They symbolise the growing breadth and diversity of retailers the BRC represents.

“This tough economic climate means it's especially important that retailers have a strong trade association fighting on their behalf.

“Reducing the burden of regulations, influencing legislation in Brussels, Westminster and Edinburgh and promoting responsible retailing makes good business sense.

Indeed no retailer; large or small, food or non-food, store-based or online should be outside the BRC. It's a broad church of retailers working behind a single strong lobbying body.”

Nick Robertson, asos.com Chief Executive said, “It is important that all retailers unite behind one voice.

We've joined the British Retail Consortium because we believe they have the ear of Government and the media on the important issues affecting our industry.”

Alan White, N Brown Group Chief Executive, said: "Now that multi-channel retailing is prevalent it makes perfect sense to have the BRC representing all sections of the retail trade especially to counter the growing regulatory burden."

Mike Hancox, Otto UK CEO, said: "The BRC represents the retail industry in the UK and as the voice of British retailing, it's paramount for us, as a UK business, to unite behind the consortium"

Stephane Roche, Redcats UK Chief Executive, said: “We have been impressed with the level of service BRC has been providing us, especially in offering an extensive and periodical understanding of the market.

I am sure they will be an efficient voice to represent home shopping in a toughening retail environment.”
