PBM is in the process of compiling statistics for our annual ‘Top 20 merchant countdown’, based on the turnover figures of the sector’s largest businesses and set to appear in the January 2017 edition of the magazine. To ensure that our statistics are as up-to-date as possible — thereby enabling us to present a truly accurate benchmark for the industry — we will be contacting a number of merchant firms to request information.
All we require are answers to a handful of questions relating to projected turnover for the year (the full calendar year of 2016), number of branches, membership of any buying group / industry organisation, etc. All told, our survey should take no more than a few minutes to complete and all information returned will be treated with the utmost sensitivity.
Our countdown makes for one of PBM’s most popular features, providing a clear reference point for development and change in the sector. To ensure its accuracy, we need YOUR support.
If you have not been contacted before, or think this may be the year your business breaks into the merchant sector’s Top 20, please contact PBM via email firstname.lastname@example.org
