Much like the weather, Brexit has become a somewhat convenient excuse for struggling retailers to explain away weak sales. But in the case of Bonmarché, it was the final nail in the coffin.

Brands’ retail empires are another nail in our coffin, say angry indies
the problem is European brands like Scotch and Jack Jones who have been very successful outside the UK, fail to understand that the UK retail scene is different, and they will burn a lot of cash trying, then you look at some of the others who have dipped there toes in the water, Lacoste (doesn't make money out of retail) Henri Lloyd the same, Luke have done it the franchise route who are not making money from it, GStar struggling to make it work with both own stores and franchise, then you get all the driver owner brands like Common People, Weekend Offender, Duck & Cover who will all fail in the end mainly down to product, lack of infrastructure and people who understand how to run a retail business
Boss, well Jury is still out and it will be interesting if they can sustain it in the end, there advantage was taking over an established store portfolio where the initial ground work was already done from Moss
Ted Baker is probably one of the few brands that have rolled out a successful portfolio of store across the UK - most of the others have stuck to London which is probably where they will be most successful but if they don't make it there then that should be a warning to them not to venture outside the capital!
