It’s been a busy few days for multichannel and ecommerce retailers reporting their results this week, and in today’s InternetRetailing newsletter we focus on what those results tell us of how UK retail is benefitting from the opportunities that digital commerce offers.

From John Lewis and Morrisons, to, Next, Dunelm, Thorntons and Kingfisher businesses B&Q and Screwfix, the consumer move towards digital commerce is opening up opportunities and challenges at every turn. Read the stories to find out how each is mapping its own journey towards a future in which shoppers will undoubtedly expect a seamless experience.

Last but not least, today’s guest comment comes from David Brint of SpinMe, who considers the rise of the visual consumer.
