About Us

Monday Retail IQ began as The Monday Report on Retailers in 1973 as a subscription-only weekly print newsletter delivering valuable news and insights on retail chains in the Canadian market and developments in the Canadian retail real estate industry.

Over the years Monday Retail IQ evolved into a digital suite of products, which now include weekly email alerts for retail industry professionals, as well as two online databases: the Canadian Directory of Shopping Centres and the Directory of Retail Chains in Canada. These products were in response to our customers, who requested comprehensive services to assist their leasing efforts.

The Monday Retail IQ email alert

The Monday Retail IQ email alert is a weekly, at-a-glance summary of retailers on the move, including expansion plans, retailers coming to Canada, startups and closures. This brief bulletin cuts through the clutter to allow customers to more quickly view the information they need.
