    Need your help structuring a sentence

    Hi all,

    I a designer preparing a business card for a client,
    it's for a commercial company opening a retail branch.

    I'm struggling with this, I need to write on the card below the logo:
    - Retail company by XYZ
    or
    - A retail company by XYZ

    What would be the proper way to structure this? with an "a" or without?



    Thanks,
    Rani

    You might also write: An XYZ retail company.
