We touched on this earlier in the week, regarding the recent struggles the department stores have been seeing. The biggest issue is that major designer brands are cannibalizing sales at the Department stores through the internet experience with consumer direct marketing and in the Mall’s themselves.
Ultimately the Department stores will need to find a way around through exclusive offerings, brands of their own, or by carrying less inventory.
Video of the week will be a new weekly feature, touching on the major themes from the week.
