The Confederation of Zimbabwe Retailers was established in November 2013. Before then there was no sector-wide representation for retail players and that untenable scenario culminated in the formation of the CZR. Upon establishment, the CZR answered distress calls especially from SMEs and relatively large retailers, united in bemoaning the absence of a genuine lobbying entity with the capacity and zeal to advance Zimbabwe’s retail sector. Equal to this mammoth task, the Confederation of Zimbabwe Retailers is the biggest retail business representative board both by membership and voice as far as lobbying and advocacy on critical policy issues is concerned.

Towards a vibrant and sustainable retail sector.
