EnsembleIQ Expands the Retail Technology Coverage and Reach of Chain Store Age, Enhancing a Powerhouse Retail Brand to Serve the Entire Retail Ecosystem

EnsembleIQ’s Chain Store Age, the leading source of industry news and insights for retail executives, is expanding its retail technology coverage and reach, enhancing the powerhouse retail brand to serve the entire retail ecosystem.

The company today announces that Chain Store Age is growing to engage the community formerly served by EnsembleIQ brand RIS News. Chain Store Age reaches top retail decision-makers responsible for directing corporate strategies, capital expenditures, and all areas of retail operations. As the C-suite continues to play a major role in technology purchasing decisions, Chain Store Age will now deliver retail leaders with the comprehensive retail technology information they need to help their companies succeed.

EnsembleIQ is committed to providing retail executives with actionable insights to help run their businesses. Enhancing Chain Store Age enables EnsembleIQ to devote the critical resources needed to innovate and effectively provide the valuable news and trends that senior retail decision-makers need to succeed.

“As the retail business continues to evolve, EnsembleIQ has made the strategic decision to expand Chain Store Age to serve the former RIS News community,” said Gary Esposito, VP and Group Publisher, Chain Store Age. “With a strong reach into the C-suite, technology, operations, store planning, real estate and finance departments of retail companies, adding a new retail technology component to Chain Store Age makes it an even more powerful retail brand, serving all retail segments and channels.”

Prior to this current expansion, Chain Store Age also recently grew to engage the community formerly served by EnsembleIQ brand Retail Leader, in 2023.

Chain Store Age‘s expanded brand provides suppliers and solution providers with a dominant retail reach and audience. For sponsorship opportunities, contact Gary Esposito at [email protected].
