Preview: Inside Retail Weekly 2093

IRWA sneak peak at what’s featured in tomorrow’s issue of Inside Retail Weekly….

Is the Muir family finally closing in on a suitor for The Good Guys white goods and appliances chain? The retailer has had an ‘open for offers’ sign above its doors for five years, but talk of an IPO and restructuring the business has prompted potential buyers to re-evaluate their options. In our cover story this week Jared Dickson examines the deal most likely for The Good Guys, what’s motivating prospective suitors and what factors may be holding them back.

In News we take a closer look at Myer’s new virtual reality department store, Country Road’s investment in sustainability and a French lingerie brand’s big plans for Australian retail. Elsewhere in news, managing editor Justin Grey reports from the final two stops on the Westfield World Study Tour: London and Paris.

In From The Source, Inside Retail chats with Gary Alford, CEO – Commercial at Retail Food Group, ahead of his promotion to group CEO of the Gold Coast-based QSR franchise group.

In Features we take a look at Supre’s evolution and what’s in store for regional shopping centre Pacific Werribee following its $400 million redevelopment.

You’ll find all of this, and much more, in Inside Retail Weekly Issue 2093.
