New Team to Navigate the Retail Sector


Building relationships, raising the profile of social science research and identifying opportunities for collaboration will be the main focus of a new Retail Knowledge Navigator Team. Working with the retail sector is a key priority for the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), who are delighted to announce the appointment of Nottingham Business School as Retail Knowledge Navigators. Given the broad range of stakeholders and research agendas, the Council has identified the need to supplement its existing resource with a team of expert knowledge brokers who will be able to forge stronger links between the social science community and the retail sector. This team will include: Professor Kim Cassidy, Dr Sheilagh Resnick and Professor Paul Whysall all from Nottingham Business School, part of Nottingham Trent University.

We need your help to put together a 25 year gallery that will show iconic machinery and images that help represent the industry over the past 25 years.” There will be a dedicated area on the


show floor that will host the 25-year gallery, where visitors will be able to walk around and see machinery and tools in the flesh as well as photographs and images of things that have really stood out since 1987. The organisers are looking to welcome contributions to the gallery in the form of working products or images.


HMF Accessorise Clothing Company’s Building


Internet fulfilment company Alex and Alexa recently expanded their distribution centre with the useful assistance of Hampshire Mezzanine Floors. Alex and Alexa contacted HMF when they needed to increase the capacity of the building and the number of pick face lines that was required for the growth of the business. Having done a complete survey of their existing distribution centre, HMF provided layouts for the proposed new storage equipment configuration. HMF, a Dexion Storage Centre based in Southampton, specified Dexion Hi280 adjustable shelving. This shelving was three metres high and included mesh backs and sides to all exposed edges of the shelving.
