    Fashion: Negative October brings the Fashion figures of 2017 to -1%

    Compared to a very positive October last year, the Fashion market was not able to equal these figures this year. Therefore, October is, unfortunately, responsible for a decline in value of -1% for 2017. Compared to last year, the weather in October 2017 was much better, which may have had an impact when shopping for autumn and winter collection.

    Long live the store! – Keeping brick-and-mortar stores relevant in face of the e-commerce onslaught

The real story is not that simple, considering that nearly 90% of goods purchased in the U.S. are still purchased in a physical store, “oblivion” looks to be a long way off.
