    Britain's M&S to cut 351 store jobs

    British retailer Marks & Spencer (MKS.L) said on Monday it would cut 351 jobs at stores across the country, seeking to make savings in a brutally competitive market. The job losses, first reported by The Guardian, will be mainly in various store management roles and are unrelated to M&S' program to close 100 UK stores by 2022 which has already cost some jobs. "M&S is transforming and this is a tough but necessary decision to take to ensure our stores support the future of the business and provide the best service for our customers," a spokeswoman for the retailer said.

    ASOS blames warehouse ramp-ups for sales growth miss

    British online fashion retailer ASOS (LSE: ASC.L - news) missed analysts' forecasts for sales growth in its latest trading period, saying it had reined in marketing efforts as it focused on ramping up warehousing space in Germany and the United States. Listed on London's junior AIM market, ASOS shares had risen 13 percent in the year to Wednesday's close, and the stock had been trading at 67 times forecast earnings, one of the highest multiples in the sector, giving little margin for error. ASOS, which sells fashion aimed at twentysomethings, said total retail sales rose 22 percent to 802.7 million pounds in the four months to June 30 - below analysts' average forecast for growth of 25.8 percent and the 27 percent growth it reported in the first half.

    M&S chairman tells investors there's no quick fix

    Shareholders in Marks & Spencer (MKS.L) should not be overly concerned about its financial results over the next two years because those numbers are not that important to the clothing and food retailer's future, its new chairman told them on Tuesday. Retail veteran Archie Norman joined M&S as chairman in September last year and two months later the company detailed its latest attempt at a turnaround after more than a decade of failed reinventions. The plan included a five-year programme of store closures and relocations to cut excess selling space in its clothing business, increased technology investment and moves to make a misfiring food business more competitive.

    Carrefour, Tesco deal to squeeze suppliers, big and small

    PARIS/LONDON (Reuters) - A deal between Carrefour and Tesco to team up on global purchasing will help them not only cut prices but also expand their own-label ranges, tightening a squeeze on major brand producers such as Nestle and Kraft Heinz. The Carrefour-Tesco alliance will reset relationships with global suppliers like Unilever, Nestle and Procter & Gamble, at a time when they are already battling sluggish demand and start-up rivals. In a further blow to major consumer goods firms, the pair will also jointly source own-brand products, sales of which are growing rapidly in Europe due to the expansion of discounters like Aldi and Lidl which mostly stock private-label goods.

    Carrefour and Tesco up stakes with new purchasing alliance

    PARIS/LONDON (Reuters) - Europe's largest supermarket groups Carrefour (CARR.PA) and Tesco (TSCO.L) have agreed to form a global purchasing alliance to demand better terms from major suppliers in the latest attempt by the industry to drive down costs.

Such alliances are becoming increasingly common in Europe's retail sector as supermarkets battle to keep prices down to counter German-owned discount groups Aldi and Lidl and the looming shadow of U.S. internet giant Amazon (AMZN.O).

    UK's N Brown looks to close all 20 stores and move online

    British clothing retailer N Brown Group Plc said on Thursday it was looking to close all its stores and move entirely online, the latest in a string of chains cutting back their High Street presence due to the tough retail environment. Many British retailers, including Marks & Spencer (Frankfurt: 534418 - news) and House of Fraser, are shutting shops in the face of competition from online retailers such as Amazon, a squeeze on consumer budgets and a change in Britons’ spending habits away from fashion and toward holidays and entertainment. N Brown (LSE: BWNG.L - news) , which targets women over 30 and specialises in larger sizes, said it was considering closing its last 20 stores, due to a disappointing number of shoppers.
