former chief executive of Iceland and DIY retailer Wickes joined forces with eight associates to produce a self-funded review of the High Street.

Consumer needs & expectations have evolved, so it’s time we prepare, for a ‘bold new world’ and find the best ways to manage the inevitable transition in a way that meets consumer, community and retailer demands both now and in the future.
