Myer’s retreat

Screen Shot 2015-05-08 at 9.01.22 amThe big guns are in the spotlight this week, with industry suggestions Myer will shut down a raft of stores, and Woolworths revealing its strategy for the future.

Aside from the big boys, we speak to the new MD of a retail apparel business about its new direction, social responsibility is top of mind for a home grown franchise, and customers are jogging into a store in an unexpected retail location.

In other news, a menswear store is making its history contemporary, and the focus shifts from strips to centres for a kids retailer.

Claire Hibbit brings us the first reports on the 2015 Westfield World Retail Study Tour straight from New York, while Michael Baker takes readers through the ‘shoebox doctrine’.
