From Brexit to Black Friday: updates from IRUK Top500 retailers

We’re hunting for the latest multichannel trends and strategic updates in today’s InternetRetailing newsletter. Thus we analyse what retailers from Burberry to Bonmarché, by way of Halfords, Pets at Home and the N Brown Group, had to say on issues from mobile and Black Friday to Brexit and international trade in their latest trading updates.

Today we also have news of how November appears to have firmly overtaken December as peak online trading month, according to the ONS. That’s a piece of news that points to the very real importance of Black Friday as a shopping event.

We’re also counting down to next week’s first InternetRetailing Events B2B Summit.

Today’s guest comment comes from Niklas Hedin, chief executive of Centiro, who puts the case for cloud.

Finally, we have news of a new marketplace dedicated to products from a single UK region, the North East, and we have a round-up of 12 approaches that really work when it comes to putting the customer at the heart of retail businesses.
