David Jones’ white knight

 

1995The biggest news this week is South Africa’s Woolworths’ bid for David Jones, and we have all the analysis on the potential sale. In addition, we take a close look at Woolworths’ CEO, Ian Moir’s retail history and background, and his plans for the department store chain.

In other news, Next Athleisure is revamping is Glue Store network, with a focus on womenswear and a new look and feel. We also have news of UK brand, Miss Selfridge, and its plans for standalone stores in the local market.

H&M opened its doors in Melbourne last week, but another international giant is still to come – that is, Uniqlo – which debuts in Australia next week with the opening of the Emporium shopping centre development in the Melbourne CBD.

Easter is not far off, and for those wondering how to best capitalise on social media and marketing over the period, we have advice on the best times during the day, as well as campaign lengths.

Speaking of the Easter break, please note that Inside Retail PREMIUM will take a brief two week hiatus as a result of the Good Friday and Anzac Day public holidays. Inside Retail will next return to your inbox on Friday, May 2.
