 “When the rebound starts, those businesses that know their customers are definitely going to be in a stronger position than those who have just got to reboot their marketing along with every other company and compete for customers at the same time. It’s going to be tough. Whereas if you’ve already invested in a customer loyalty scheme, then you’re already in a better situation than those without it.” Steve Gray, Director, SG-retail
