Sainsbury’s and Asda are joining forces, contextualising an FT report this week that revealed UK food and drink M&As were weighing in at a staggering £12.2 billion. The furore chimes perfectly with a recent interview our CEO Will Broome gave to Forbes Magazine, reiterating the importance of independent retailers.
Will sat down with Forbes’ Trevor Clawson to discuss how independent retailers can thrive by adopting new technologies, using nimble and cost-effective solutions such as Ubamarket. The interview revealed that retailers found “the average shopping basket is 21% bigger” using innovative app-technology, and stores save money on hardware when they allow customers to pay for their groceries in-app.
