  • Comment on: Retailers take action on property

    darren hoggett's comment 15 January 2020 10:34 am

    Some retailers need to ask themselves 'Why do they still insist in being in locations they cannot afford to be in?' They might be able to take advantage of the market conditions for now, but for many, that will not be enough in the longer term as physical retail continues to decline.

  • Comment on: Christmas sales slumped after shoppers 'pull forward' purchases

    darren hoggett's comment 13 January 2020 2:58 pm

    It is blatantly obvious that by having Black Friday, there will be less sales in December than there would have been if Black Friday had not been applied.

    Retail - in general - deserves little sympathy, as its problems and issues are almost exclusively self inflicted, with Black Friday being a classic example in short sighted retail practices.

    There are success stories out there, but are becomingly increasingly few and far between. Will things get better? Don't bet on it.

  • Comment on: Millions to 'panic' spend on Monday before Christmas

    darren hoggett's comment 27 December 2019 1:59 pm

    Reports like this always seem to overhype the relevance of physical retail. This year has been a complete game changer - if you're a brand that is weak online, you're toast.

  • Comment on: ‘Exceptional' November for online sales

    Hopefully this will stop the media peddling the myth that only 20% of clothing is bought online, when it is far, far higher.

  • Comment on: Ted Baker calls in advisers

    darren hoggett's comment 6 December 2019 10:16 am

    You only bring advisers in when you don't or no longer know what you are doing. Ray was Ted Baker and now he's not there. Just saying.
