A number of our brands already have some fantastic showcases live and we’re expecting many more to be prepared over the coming weeks.”

“Now is a brilliant time to join Retaissance – we want to work closely with our early adopters to tailor our site to their needs, offer real value for money and a continually improving experience for both brands and buyers.
