Preview: Inside Retail Weekly 2103

IRWThis week our themed issue series continues with a focus on luxury retail. Unlike the other retail sectors we’ve touched on with our themed issues to date – fashion, furniture, and electronics and white goods – luxury retail crosses a number of product categories.

Our luxury retail themed content this week kicks off with a look at how Australia is fertile ground for global luxury brands, many of which are looking to establish flagships on our shores. We also bring you the key luxury retail insights from Deloitte’s recently released Global Powers Of Luxury Goods report; look at how the trending ‘fast luxury’ is closing the gap between the runway and retail; and go inside the new Tesla flagship in Sydney’s Martin Place to learn how Tesla drives customer connections.

Elsewhere in this issue, we examine the risk element associated with Richard Umbers’ ‘new Myer’ strategy. Umbers’ five-year turnaround strategy for the ailing department store chain is beginning to show some early promise, but Myer needs to tread carefully as it seeks to rediscover its DNA and what it stands for. We also dig into why Masters Home Improvement never had a chance – and why Woolworths charged ahead with the failed hardware chain nonetheless.

And in an opinion column from Peter James Ryan, we canvass what retailers can learn from Brexit and Donald Trump.

You’ll find all of this, and much more, in Inside Retail Weekly Issue 2103.
