Yesterday (October 15) saw the first of a planned series of quarterly Fed forums to get  views about the revamped print members’ magazine.

The Fed was given a new look and moved to monthly publication in March, and we invited  a group of retailers to tell us what they thought of the magazine.

The feedback from the forum was very positive, with everyone saying they liked the new layout and that it is more reader friendly, with relevant content.

They particularly liked the retailer profiles, information about new deals and offers, as well as details of who to contact for help with any issues that may arise for their business.

National president Stuart Reddish, who chaired the forum, said: “The Fed is for the members, so it was very pleasing to hear positive feedback on the new style of the magazine and that they find it helpful and useful.

“However, there is always room for improvement and we will continue to hold these forums and take all the comments on board to help us make The Fed even better in future.”

If you are interested in taking part in the next Fed forum, please email Julie.Zollikofer@nfrn.gov.uk
