About Us

The Canadian Gift Association (CanGift) is a group of wholesale giftware companies. However, it takes great pride in helping its retail partners. One of the ways it does that is via high-quality publications, including its flagship title Retail News. In publication for over 10 years, the magazine is consistently ranked as the best industry gift journal by its readers, and is supported by more advertisers than any other industry publication. That's because its award-winning content is second to none. Focusing on the issues and topics most relevant to store owners, including products, trends, merchandising techniques and easy-to-implement business ideas, Retail News is packed with valuable information and resources, and it's free for qualified buyers in the industry.

In response to reader demand for information on what was selling across the country, Retail News launched a special statistical report in 2003. MarketPulse tracks the pulse of giftware retailing by polling store owners on category and procurement trends, in addition to operational topics such as Internet use and trade show attendance.

The magazine further extended its scope in late 2007 with the launch of Retail News Now!, a bi-weekly e-newsletter focused on the latest news, hottest products and most interesting business advice. While still in its infancy, the e-newsletter has already proved a popular publication among readers for its up-to-the-minute product picks and ideas.
