Retail Week launches first app and introduces new subscriptions options

B2B title Retail Week has launched its first tablet app and unveiled three new subscription packages.

Readers can either subscribe to the ‘home and office’ print-led package, the digital ‘on the move’ deal or to ‘anytime anywhere’, which incorporates both print and digital content.

The print package costs £339 a year, the digital ££394.80 (including VAT) and the anytime anywhere package is £359.47 (including VAT) a year.

Subscriptions have previously incorporated the print edition and online access.

Retail Week, which is published by Emap, still produces a weekly print edition but now offers“close to” 70 per cent of its content exclusively on its digital products.

Chris Brook-Carter, editor-in-chief of Retail Week, said: “People now consume retail information with a growing list of objectives and at many different times. It’s our role to meet those requirements.

“The development of our digital services over the last year has been a huge step forward, but quite clearly the explosion of mobile in the last two years has demanded we launch a first-class tablet service that sits alongside our desktop and mobile sites.”

The new tablet version of Retail Week will update throughout the day on every weekday.

Employing 12 journalists, Retail Week claims a circulation of 7,505 – including more than 7,000 subscribers – and a readership of 37,600.

Meanwhile, its website claims to attract 226,169 users a month and 646,953 page impressions. Non-suscribers can sign up for a limited amount of free content on the Retail Week website.
