  • Comment on: Select to collapse into administration this week

    Eric Musgrave's comment 8 May 2019 7:37 am

    Good luck to the Select employees at this worrying time. Here is more evidence that a CVA usually only delays the inevitable. This is relevant to Debenhams' situation. Also, how many millions in fees are paid to accountants, lawyers and restructuring "experts" in these instances who they know they will probably get another load of dosh a couple of years down the line?

  • Comment on: Obituary: designer Daniel Hanson has died

    Eric Musgrave's comment 9 April 2019 8:55 am

    Very sad news. Some of us remember Daniel way back in his days with GB Clothing Company in the 1980s. Condolences to Julie and the family.

  • Comment on: Flannels: 'We want to be the biggest global luxury retailer'

    Eric Musgrave's comment 22 March 2019 12:18 pm

    Premium fashion retailing is about exclusivity, not about making it available everywhere. Having 100 Flannels is a daft idea. They'd be better sticking with 20 and attracting the customers to them. And as for overseas expansion, have they asked the brands if they will supply Flannels in the US, Europe, the Middle East etc? My guess is every one of Flannels' brands is already very well represented in every market.

  • Comment on: Trouva to help indies tackle business rates

    Eric Musgrave's comment 15 March 2019 8:44 am

    Good luck to Trouva and HDH, but it's worth pointing out that members of Bira (the British Independent Retailers Association) have had this sort of service for years as part of their membership benefits. What is not mentioned in the story is the business rates appeals process has been changed to make it even harder for a retailer to have a chance of getting a reduction. NB I edit Bira's bi-monthly magazine for members.

  • Comment on: Ashley demands position on Debenhams board

    Eric Musgrave's comment 7 March 2019 9:53 pm

    I can't wait to see two Harrods on some high streets! Or maybe Debs will be Ashley's "Harvey Nichols of the High Street". I feel sorry for the staff in all this.
