Petstock negotiating acquisition


IRP_1981blurAcquisitions and growth are big on the agenda in this week’s edition of Inside Retail PREMIUM, with a number of homegrown chains looking to build on their local presence.

Petstock is to bolster its store numbers through both a pending acquisition and new store openings, while a grocery chain is making small, but steady gains with a move into new states.

Jared Dickson turns the microscope on Coles and Woolies’ new suppliers code, masterminded by the AGFC, and Claire Hibbit investigates how US retailer, Williams-Sonoma Group is tackling Christmas in the not-so-traditional festive market of Australia.

A Melbourne-based fashion retailer says the influx of internationals is a positive for local retailer, despite losing its flagship site to H&M, a retail guidebook company has decided to try its own hand at the age old trade, opening up its own store; and a British icon fashion label has taken on a new look in Australia.

Jon Bird looks back at some of the retail premonitions he’s made over the years to check up on their progress, and in international news, what does the deregulation of Vietnamese retail mean for the country?
