Old Mutual Investment Group Property Investments (OMIGPI) launched the first issue of Global View, a bi-annual customer magazine aimed at retail and commercial tenants on Wednesday, 21 October 2009.
Articles range from an overview of the international market and how retail, design and buying trends shape the way people will shop in the future and practical tips for tenants on customer service, how to thrive in tough times, and ideas on how to green up’ retail space.
