Globe and Mail retail reporter Strauss is retiring
Marina Strauss, the retail reporter for The Globe and Mail, is retiring.
Her last day will be June 28.
“It’s been a great run with lots of support from wise editors & colleagues,” she wrote on Twitter. “Now I’m ready to move on to other things.”
She follows a wide range of topics in the sector, from the fallout of foreign retailers invading Canada to how a merchant such as the Swedish Ikea gets its mojo. She has probed the rise and fall (and revival efforts) of Loblaw Cos., Hudson’s Bay and others. In 2018 she won a SABEW Best in Business reporting award for her inside look at the transformation of Tim Hortons Cafe and Bake Shop.
She has also covered marketing, consumer products, the professions, legal affairs and city hall; she has worked in Ottawa, Montreal and Vancouver.
She has been at the Globe and Mail since 1977 and covered retail since 1999.
Strauss got her start at The Gazette in Montreal.
