Missguided has finally filled the long-vacant key post of chief digital officer. The UK-based online fast-fashion retailer has reportedly poached Nick Thomas from UK health supplements retailer Holland & Barrett.
JD Sports continues to focus on new stores and CBRE Investment Management has signed it up to a new, upsized flagship store at “Colchester’s premier shopping destination", Lion Walk. It will open this month.
Acquisition-hungry JD Sports Fashion has now moved into beauty. The UK-based sportswear giant has bought a stake in online hair & beauty brand Hairburst, which sells vitamins, shampoos and styling products.
JD Sports is possibly on the acquisition trail again with a report claiming that it's in talks to buy online fashion retailer Missguided. Neither company has commented however, so it remains unconfirmed for now.
