Hilfiger mulls return to stock market

Burberry sues Pets At Home over designs for dog accessories

Burberry is suing pet accessories chain Pets At Home claiming material used on items such as dog coats and baskets sold in the retailers’ 250 stores had used a plaid design amounting to a copyright infringement, according to the Observer. Products are understood to have been pulled from shops, but the dispute has yet to be resolved.

M&S is heading for the resort of choice for the archetypal middle-aged, middle-class, sometimes very wealthy Brit abroad — Marbella, the playground of the Costa del Sol.

ACcording to the Sunday Times, when the 14,000 sq ft franchised store opens its doors eight years after the retailer shut up shop in mainland Spain, the retailer is hoping that popular lines such as women’s lingerie and tins of shortbread will prove irresistible, and not only for the “exiles”. It also has its eye on attracting Spanish clients, for whom its stores were always a big draw.
