New Topshop boss triggers store refresh

Several Topshop stores are being temporarily closed while the merchandising is given a shake-up ahead of the crucial Christmas trading period.

Entire departments in some of the larger shops are reportedly being axed and discounted product that has failed to sell will be pulled out. It is the first time Topshop stores have been closed while these changes are carried out.

The Arcadia-owned chain was set to close around half of its estate on Sunday and today. Others are to undergo similar treatment next week, although it is understood the Oxford Street flagship is exempt as its merchandising is already regularly refreshed.

A handful of stores, including Westfield London and Westfield Stratford City, have already been updated.

The move is being overseen by new Topshop/Topman chief executive Paul Price, who joined from Burberry in September.
