UK retailers are urging strong government action as they deal with the Leicester garment factory scandal. The main company in the spotlight, Boohoo Group, and others are calling for a factory licensing system.
Last week retail N Brown said it was forging more partnerships with e-tailers for its brands and on Monday Koovs, the AIM-listed India-focused e-commerce business, said it would start selling N Brown’s Simply Be offer.
It may not come as a huge surprise but reclusive billionaires David and Frederick Barclay have put their plans to sell the giant Shop Direct e-tail business on hold as analysts said the £3 billion price tag was too high.
N Brown was upbeat Tuesday as its womenswear and plus-size brands powered on, despite a weak environment, and its online operations soared. But its US business is a work in progress and will get more marketing spend.
Nice, a provider of cloud and software solutions, has announced that N Brown Group, an online fashion retailer, is expanding its customer feedback analysis solution to improve its customer experience insights.
