Insolvency claims hit Retail Adventures

Retail Adventures is once again in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons.

Speculation is rife that the company traded while insolvent, and Inside Retail’s Digital Weekly includes the latest details on just how this has come about.

Wesfarmers has released its latest results, with growth and plans for the beleaguered Target brand featuring front and centre.

Inside Retail journalist, Claire Hibbit, speaks to some of the retailers at Melbourne’s GPO to find out their plans and how they’re feeling following the termination of their leases to make way for a flash new international tenant.

For our gentlemen readers (and the ladies that love them!), there’s some good news as Inside Retail’s Emilia Terzon investigates the growing trend of men’s fashion and how Australian retailers are approaching formerly anti-fashion males.

Also, a Melbourne footwear brand is expanding its categories, a Sydney-based accessories brand is focusing on the creation of flagships, and we look at a new gourmet food offering born out of frustration at key grocery players.

For your e-commerce hit this week, Jon Bird looks at the merging of clicks and bricks and the blurring of the line between physical and e-commerce brands.
