The fundamental purpose of the CMJ is to facilitate trade between suppliers and retailers and to support independent retailers to optimise their consumer market.
We believe that the High Street – and independent retailing as a part of it – is important to maintaining the stability of the socio-economic equilibrium. Maintaining this equilibrium requires proactive support. In 1980, the formation of the CMJ took with it the responsibility for supporting independent retailing. Today that still stands.
We believe that as a group, the more we come together, the stronger we are. We believe that we can provide the business model that enables an independent business to perform, operate and succeed significantly better within our group than it could have outside, today and into the future. We are individually strong, together we thrive.
