It’s been a busy week in the ecommerce and multichannel industry and in today’s InternetRetailing newsletter we cover the latest news from IRUK500 Elite retailers M&S and John Lewis, as well as household names from Game and Burberry to Domino’s Pizza. We report as John Lewis gives us its annual lowdown on how its shoppers buy, while M&S takes a new approach to loyalty in its new Sparks members club, while leading retailers from M&S, Shop Direct and Boohoo.com spoke in the keynote session at IRC 2015.
