Totally agree with the previous two comments, the industry has only got its self to blame.
Comment on: Drapers appoints new editor
Congratulations Kirsty, you'll do an amazing job.
Comment on: Retailers bring forward summer Sales
I totally agree with Darren, summer hasn't started yet, June is still spring, July, August and September is our summer now. Why does the industry wake up to this fact.
With some companies is going on sale on 1st June, what message does that send to the consumer.
Totally agree with Eric, as long-term you cannot run a business constantly discount, constantly price matching, and taking part in Black Friday, it is madness. This is why hundreds of companies are having problems or actually folding. House of Fraser, 50% sale, for last 2 weeks, spring as only just started.
Comment on: Christmas discounting to reach record high
When will the British retailers learn, you can't keep discounting product 12 months of the year, and expect to make profits, point in case House of Fraser, Debenhams need I go on.
Yes we are down on turnover this year, but our margins are strong which equates to profit.
