Frequently-Asked Questions

How do I access all areas of the website?

You need to be a paid subscriber to access all areas of the website as Retail Week has recently changed to a subscription barrier model – this limits full access only to customers who have a paid-for subscription.

If you do not have a subscription, you can access all articles within a few minutes by ordering a subscription online.

Why do I have to register on the website if I am a paid subscriber?

Even if you are a paid subscriber, you need to be registered on our website to access all the online content that is available.

To register, first enter your Subscriber Number and your surname (exactly as it appears on the wrapper/label on your magazine subscription copy) and then complete the registration form.

What is the difference between a registered user and a subscriber?

A subscriber pays an annual subscription which provides access to the full website - plus delivery of a printed magazine.

A registered user can sign up for free e-newsletters and access only limited areas and content on the website.

When do I need to log in?

We suggest each time you use the website, you log in immediately on the home page – using the link at the top right, under the navigation bar. This will then make it easier for you to access all articles quickly and easily as you navigate through the site.

Alternatively, when you click on a subscriber-only link, you will be asked to log in.

I am being asked for my Subscriber Number. How do I find it?

Your subscriber number is a 10-digit number which is used to identify both you and your subscription. It can be found on any email or written correspondence we have sent you – or on the wrapper/label on your subscription copy.
