Myer and DJs can see the future, and its name is H&M

Department stores are a relic of a lost age, and the explosion of online retail and the excitement around stores like H&M prove it. It's time to get with the times, writes business director and commentator John Addis.

David Jones might be relishing a 2.4% increase in same-store sales — although maybe not as much as a nice takeover offer from South African retailer Woolworths — but out on the street, shoppers have spoken. And they aren’t saying, “Wow, DJs!”

    Slightly embarrassing to see so many people queue outside Swedish Supre!

    ‘Swedish Supre’, a bouquet to Mendoza.

    I recall similar crowd queuing & a degree of mass hysteria when Stella McCartney released a range of women’s clothing (for Target? KMart?) in recent years. Do we hear of women boasting they wear that label nowadays?

    What is the difference between an “e-tailer” and a “native online retailer”? Success or failure perhaps.

    “Fine Service” ??? Unfortuntanely that is one of the things Myer and DJ’s have been falling down on for a while. Which just leaves them with ‘Brands”.
