Interesting Snapshot of Retail on 60 Minutes

60 Minutes’ Charles Wooley’s story on retail tonight was interesting if not detailed or in-depth, well  I suppose that is left to ABC & SBS.

He spoke to:

  • Net-a-Porter Founder Natalie Massenet, inspiring woman and a great business woman! I am a huge fan of the site as well as their expertise as online retailers
  • Surfstitch Founders (Justin Cameron and Lex Pederson – who have grown exponentially since they started their online business 3 years ago
  • Glitzern owners Caroline Price and Moira Rogers – who are closing their Melbourne store, in the laneways of the city, because they can’t afford to stay open and moving online
  • International Fashion Group‘s David Mendels who is absolutely butting heads with the online revolution.  He is not embracing it and integrating it into his business.  He is not alone sadly.

I would have liked to have seen a bricks and mortar store with a well integrated online presence as well.

Tuesday on Insight on SBS they are addressing Retail, I think it will be far more in-depth – I would love to be part of the in-studio discussion!!


At least the spotlight is being placed on the retail industry hey?!
