Abstract


This article aims to study development of Customer Relationship Management as a new way of applying marketing concepts in the Albanian retail industry. Research in other industries has shown that the planning and execution of CRM strategies can bring higher profitability. In the case of Albania, businesses still neglect the benefits that they can receive using different CRM strategies.
