Getting closer to Christmas 2013

This is an archived article - we have removed images and other assets but have left the text unchanged for your reference

In today’s Internet Retailing newsletter, we’re getting into the early Christmas spirit as we report on early sales growth for John Lewis ahead of the all important Christmas period, and on eBay’s backing of what’s billed as the world’s first shoppable pantomime. Elsewhere we bring news of how investment in technology and more stores is helping Majestic Wine to boost its sales and tell how Mothercare Ukraine is the first of a series of websites for the nursery retailer’s franchisees across the world. Meanwhile, Duvet and Pillow Warehouse is grabbing headlines as it hires Sir Stuart Rose as chairman. We’ve also caught up with the Children’s Furniture Company, a year on from its relaunch, in our diary of a start-up piece. Read on for news of all these stores, as well as to learn more of two job opportunities at Internet Retailing, to gain access to our conference videos, and for news of our Expo next March.

If you missed a presentation that you’d like to catch up on at Internet Retailing Conference 2013, you can do so now through the post-event website. Visitors to can access all the presentations that we’ve been given permission to share with our audiences.

Our webinars

The next in our series of free webinars will be held on December 4, when we’ll hear from Trustpilot on the importance of customer reviews as we head for peak Christmas trading, and the sale season that follows. Santa’s last stand: how you can use reviews to win this Christmas and in the January sales will start at 11am, and feature speaker Nils Michaelis, digital marketing manager at Trustpilot and a case study from luxury lifestyle website Achica.
