Fascinating string of articles in Inside Retailing this month which started with a Retail Consultant claiming that landlords are responsible for the current retail malaise and proposing that retailers should join together in a class action type manoeuvre to demand a 33% rent reduction.
Subsequent articles took the blame away from landlords and back on to retailers. The arguments are fascinating (and mind boggling) so rather than try to analyse them we are going to take the easy way out and invite you to have a read. Don’t forget to read the comments as well – they are equally good reading.
And don’t forget to let us have your thoughts.
