Value retail giant Primark is going from strength to strength we learned Thursday morning as parent company Associated British Foods issued an upbeat trading update. Its UK stores are strong, as is Italy and the US.
Part of the Printemps group, the youth retailer will open a 1,700 square metre store on the famous avenue. The outlet looks to reach a more international clientele, as well as attracting more women through its doors.
The Sydney-based P Johnson launched on Mr Porter this week, with a collection designed by founder Patrick Johnson. Johnson is the first Australian designer to make the British e-commerce giant's luxury roster.
The fashion buzz about LA continues. The multi brand retailer is opening a 10,000-square-foot retail location in Los Angeles' Arts District, its second US location, designed by store founder Rei Kawakubo.
The importance of the online retail channel to the UK has been made clear in a new Mintel report that shows Britons received billions of parcels in 2016 with the market for delivery at £10.1bn. And it said speed is key.
