Screen Shot 2015-05-29 at 8.47.36 amBrett Blundy is about to reap another windfall by listing Adairs in an IPO.

In this week’s Inside Retail PREMIUM edition, we look at the history of the manchester and homewares chain, and take a look at other retail IPOs on the drawing board this year.

The ailing David Jones is in the spotlight this week: South Africa’s Woolworths outlines how it is set to reform the department store’s offer building on the reputation of the brands within the broader Country Road Group.

We also take a look at another troubled retailer, Oroton whose woes all lead back to a now abandoned discounting strategy. And what lies ahead for its loss-making Brooks Brothers chain?

Super Retail Group outlines its new supply chain and distribution strategy and explains how it will deliver $20 million in annual savings across the group.

We talk to the owners of Australia’s largest online jeweller, a fast-growing sleepwear chain with a new concept, and discuss pop ups with the head of Nespresso Australia.
