December 2015

As the festivities wind down, we gear up for the next joy of gifting occasions for Christmas and the start of a New year. With fewer discounts by online players and new season merchandise offered by physical retailers, we are seeing a significant sales growth for the overall retail business. This ensures that both organised and unorganised retail companies have better prospects this season. This edition brings the latest updates from Qwikcilver - your Gift Card Technology Partner to make this gifting season another memorable one.
