British Retail Consortium

The British Retail Consortium represents all types of retail trader, from one person corner shops to out-of-town hypermarkets and e-tailers. It is a high-profile organisation with involvement in many issues, including food safety, e-commerce and employment law. BRC serves both retailers and consumers. The site gives key facts about retailing in the UK and lists details of its useful publications, some available in full text (PDF format), some in paper form. These include a Quarterly Economic Monitor and Parliamentary Retail News. The News section has BRC comments on topical issues. There are useful factsheets for students and researchers on shopping in Britain.
