Part of our extensive UK business database, our list of retailers is one of our most popular requests as it connects clients to a rapidly-changing and ever-evolving sector constantly seeking to innovate as it battles with high costs, competition from the internet, and the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

What’s on our list of retailers

On our retailers database, we have the following contact information

  • 303,161 retail businesses,
  • 258,005 retail decision maker names,
  • 224,455 retail decision maker telephone numbers, and
  • 66,275 retail decision maker email addresses

Our retailers list is suitable for firms looking to target smaller firms – if you are targeting retail chains like Marks & Spencer, Home Depot, Best Buy, Walmart, large home improvement firms, or discount food retailers from Germany like Aldi or Lidl, please let us know so that we can provide you with a retail industry list which is more suitable for you. Most of the businesses on our database have a company turnover of less than £5m – our lists are suitable if you are targeting businesses of this size.

Our list of retail-sector businesses is offered with a 12 month usage licence. You can contact the retail firms on this list as many times as you like for the year following purchase (subject to a maximum of one email campaign a month).

As one of the UK’s fastest growing data list companies, we also offer accuracy guarantees which, if we fail to meet them, will result in a pro-rata refund to you or the replacement of overage records.

To find out more about our list of retailers and how to sell your products and services to retail-sector businesses, please call 0330 010 3495 or you can click here to email us.

Do I have to buy the contact details of all the retail companies on your database

No – with any direct marketing campaign, you should only buy data for the contacts within companies most likely to need your products and services.

Who is on our list of retailers? Generally, the contacts we have on retail industry database are for the CEO or managing directory if the company has less than 100 staff or 10 branches.

However, we have a small selection of other job functions available including retail operations, engineering procurement, facilities management, finance, fleet, health and safety, human resources, marketing, general procurement, sales, and telecoms. If you have a specific type of retail industry contact you want to market to, please let us know when you call us.

Contained on our general list of retailers is the following information:

  • contact title for salutations (for example, Mr, Mrs, Dr, Miss, and Sir)
  • contact name (separate fields for first and last name)
  • job title (the job title reported by the contact)
  • retailer name
  • line of retail (please see the drop-down box below the contact box for a full list of classifications)
  • legal status
  • postal address including 2 lines for the address, town, county, and postcode
  • telephone number (main switchboard number)
  • decision maker email address

Your database is supplied on either Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Access, or comma-separated value formats.

Marketing to retail-sector businesses

With our database of retail companies, your business can (variation of get their products and services in front of decision makers with budgets and a need for your product or service).

Then can you include a short description of what “direct marketing” is and link that phrase to naturally in the text?

Email marketing to retailing firms

With our list of retail stores, you can run up to twelve email marketing campaigns where your message will land direct in the inboxes of decision makers.

Using our B2B email database of retailers gives you a low cost way of promoting your products and services to the people and companies you’re targeting as well as the ability to ascertain individual interest through monitoring the opens and clickthroughs.

Telemarketing to retail-sector companies

Your telemarketing and telesales team can get into direct contact with the decision makers on our retail companies list.

With a telemarketing campaign, you can book appointments for your sales reps, generate leads for follow-up, and gather information on each of the companies. The B2B telemarketing data on our list offers you the opportunity to open two-way conversations with the people who have the budgets to purchase your products and services.

All of our business to business mailing lists can be adapted enabling mailing houses to claim postage cost discounts.

Selling to retail companies and smaller retail chains

Selling to real world retailers and online retailers during this time of change is challenging but exciting.

The sector needs innovation from its brands to win the battle for consumer spending. In addition to being an opportune time for suppliers to help cut retailers’ costs, there are opportunities for suppliers which can enhance the in-store customer experience as well as the customer experience on retailers’ websites as they battle for growth and to regain market share. Consumers need to be tempted back into stores as they have a natural disadvantage in not having the data that online retailers possess about their consumers.

Whatever you’re looking for, let us help you whether it’s a list of clothing retailers, a list of small retail companies in the UK, or a list of food retailers.

Looking for e commerce retailers too?

We maintain separate lists for e commerce retailers (retail-sector firms whose greatest presence is online and which transact most of their sales via their websites and apps like Amazon) on our database. Please ask for more information on our online retailer data service.
