INSIGHT: US Back-to-School: who makes the grade? (£) | Planet Retail

Back to school

School’s out for summer, but not if retailers have any say. Similar to the Christmas Creep, the back-to-school (BTS) season is pushing the calendar limits and becoming a summer-long event. Will the early birds – i.e. retailers getting a jump on BTS as early as June – move to the front of the class? And will we see any true innovation this season - deep discounts aside - to grab shopper attention?

INSIGHT: Shinsegae looks to gatecrash Korea’s c-store party (£) | Planet Retail

Shinsegae has announced ambitious plans to ramp up its involvement in the Korean convenience store sector, aiming to have 2,500 With me outlets up and running within three or four years. The retailer believes the secret to breaking into the already-crowded channel lies in its innovative franchising system by which it plans to attract store owners to the banner. With Korea’s established big four already controlling about a 90% market share and against the backdrop of a sluggish economy, Planet Retail considers whether Shinsegae’s plan stands any chance of success.
