Brands’ retail empires are another nail in our coffin, say angry indies


If I was a brand and saw that a stockist in a certain area selling well then I would obviously look at setting up a stand alone store there. It's nothing personal, just business. Why all the indignant rage? The indie crowd have this annoying sense of entitlement about them whereby if they stock a brand they are owed exclusivity/mark ups/preferential treatment purely on the basis that they are a stockist! Unfortunately it's time to wake up and realise that you need the brands - they don't need you.
