Private Label Europe – Wonderful Waitrose

PRIVATE Label EuropeThis newest issue of Private Label Europe is posted online and it features stories on English retailers Waitrose and Tesco, French retailers Carrefour, Relay and Casino as well as a look at European Grocery websites. The site promises a new website in August but this link features a flash based look at the print magazine. The magazine is well done and graphically interesting where so many trade magazines fall to the lackluster or boring. Hopefully the new website will step away from the print paradigm and give a richer more usable user experience.
