I haven’t posted lately, because work life has been … interesting.
Bloomberg as well as other outlets are reporting the end of the big box store (Wal-Mart, Target, K-Mart) era. It seems that schemes like Amazon Prime are offering people convenience and greater savings.
What does this mean for the fashion business?
This means that since people are shifting their focus to online buying, small labels with an e-commerce presence will be able to compete at a global level with even the big brands to a certain extent. This will make small producers even more competitive.
Maybe we’re seeing the beginning of the age of dominance of retailers like Shabby Apple!
