Brands’ retail empires are another nail in our coffin, say angry indies
Hugo Boss are without doubt probably the most aggressive and underhand company to apply this strategy without even having the good manners to inform or discuss with their often longstanding retailers who have helped build the brand in that particular area of their intentions.
Mini chain retailer John Anthony in the south west, a Hugo Boss client for over 27years set a very good example of showing his disgust by cancelling all his orders with the company when they, without informing him, opened a standalone store two hundred yards from one of his stores in Bristol.
Maybe it's time for retailers to start planning their exit strategy with these companies and focus on becoming truly independent once again, before they let these companies totally consume them.
