    M&S to shake-up clothing supply chain with new centre

    Marks & Spencer (MKS.L) said on Wednesday it would open a huge new clothing and homeware logistics centre in 2019, as part of the British retailer's strategy of simplifying its distribution network. M&S revised its strategy in November, two months after retail veteran Archie Norman joined as chairman, saying it needed further changes to modernise the clothing and homeware supply chain to reduce costs and make it faster. The firm said it would open a 495,000 square feet mechanised clothing and homeware distribution centre at a former Tesco (TSCO.L) site in Hertfordshire, southern England, next year.

    UK's B&M confirms march of the discounters with festive sales rise

    British retailer B&M reported strong trading in the last quarter of 2017, underlining the appeal of discount retailers in the Christmas period to increasingly budget-conscious consumers. Earlier this month Aldi UK and Lidl UK, the British grocery arms of the German discount supermarkets, reported total sales growth for December of "over 15 percent" and 16 percent respectively, driven by aggressive store opening programmes, but with some comparable store sales growth. Liverpool, northwest England-based B&M, which trades as B&M Bargains and B&M Homestore in the UK, said on Friday group sales rose 22.7 percent in the 13 weeks to Dec (Shanghai: 600875.SS - news) .

    New Look plots closure of 60 shops as high street ‎pain grows

    Sky News has learnt that the South African-owned chain is drawing up proposals for a Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA), a process often used by struggling retailers to restructure financial obligations to creditors. Sources said on Thursday night that New Look's CVA plan was not yet finalised and was only one of a number of options under consideration. If it does go ahead with the store closures, roughly one-tenth of New Look's nearly-600 outlets in Britain would be axed, with sizeable rent reductions sought at many of the remaining shops.

    U.K. cancer charity joins network tackling supply chain slavery

    Imagine buying charity merchandise to fund cancer research - only to find you had instead supported the global trade in human trafficking and bought an item made by modern-day slaves. Seeking to prevent such a scenario, one of the world's largest cancer charities said on Thursday it was ramping up efforts to spot forced labour in its supply chain by joining a platform for sharing ethical sourcing data. British charity Cancer Research UK said it had signed up to Sedex, an organisation working to improve supply chain transparency, to ensure the clothing and merchandise sold at its 600 shops in Britain were ethically sourced and slavery-free.

    Results drive sharp moves in European stocks as euro weighs

    European shares dipped on Thursday as a bond market sell-off and a stronger euro took the steam out of the breakneck New Year rally in equities. The pan-European STOXX 600 and euro zone equities ended the session 0.3 percent lower, extending sharp losses in the previous session when jitters over a report that China was considering slowing purchases of U.S. Treasury bonds spilled over into stocks. While the STOXX was roughly flat for most of the morning session, the index dipped followed the release of minutes from the European Central Bank's December meeting showing that the ECB should revisit its policy message in early 2018.

M&S blamed unseasonal autumn weather as clothing and homeware sales dropped by 2.8% in the 13 weeks to 30 December while food - until recently a stellar performer for the company - slid by 0.4%.

    Britain's M&S feels heat from mild October as sales stumble

    Marks & Spencer's clothes and sales fell in the last quarter of 2017, hampering the British retailer's latest attempt at a corporate turnaround and knocking its shares. Once a venerable British institution, M&S faces unrelenting competition on the high street and online, while efforts to revitalise its 134-year-old business are being held back by a squeeze on consumers as inflation rises and wage growth falters. “I would describe the consumer as quite fragile and quite volatile and if there’s a reason not to spend they take it,” M&S Chief Executive Steve Rowe told reporters.

    Contrasting fortunes for UK retailers over key Christmas period

    Tesco has enjoyed its best Christmas since 2010, a detail packed with symbolism, as that was its last under Sir Terry Leahy, the chief executive who turned the company into the world's second-largest retailer and whose departure heralded several years of turmoil. Tesco's UK like-for-like sales - the measure the City takes most seriously because it takes no account of store openings or refurbishments and is the best indicator of underlying sales performance - were up by 1.9% during the six weeks to January 6.

    M&S's clothing sales to fall again as UK grocers show resilience

    Britain's Marks & Spencer is expected to report another fall in comparable clothing sales in its Christmas quarter, though the major grocers are forecast to report solid trading as cash-strapped consumers prioritised spend on food and drink. While the big quoted retailers appear to have performed respectably, a theme for the period is likely to be a further shift in market share to the German discounters, reflecting defensively minded consumers.
