FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Columbus, Ohio, June 7, 2023 – Asset Strategies Group (ASG) is pleased to announce its latest move in the retail services sector: the acquisition of The Robin Report. Just as with their acquisition of Chute Gerdeman in 2020, this transaction is another significant step in ASG’s ongoing commitment to broaden and enhance its scope of retail services, offering clients comprehensive, industry-leading insights.

The Robin Report, published daily, along with its weekly Retail Unwrapped podcast, has established itself as a highly regarded retail industry knowledge platform and is the latest addition to ASG’s growing portfolio.  The acquisition is a clear demonstration of ASG’s dedication to providing its clients with the best possible resources for understanding and navigating the ever-evolving retail landscape.

The combination of The Robin Report’s retail insights with ASG’s extensive experience as a leading provider of real estate, store design, and related business services for retailers furthers ASG’s mission to serve retail with strategic leadership.

“The acquisition of The Robin Report is in perfect alignment with our long-term growth strategy,” said Carrie Barclay, ASG President & CEO. “As we saw with our acquisition of Chute Gerdeman, this move represents a crucial investment in knowledge and capabilities to ensure we continue to offer unparalleled retail services and insights in the rapidly shifting retail sector. We are thrilled to welcome The Robin Report team to the ASG family.”

ASG’s acquisition of The Robin Report will not only enhance its service offerings but also reinforce its position as a leader in the retail services industry.
