German perfume and cosmetics retailer Douglas has set the scene for a possible return to the stock market by growing strongly online, although a decision rests with its owners, its chief executive said.
A new report from eBay suggests retailers should be ready to pounce on shoppers focused purely on themselves (rather than on buying gifts as they have been in recent weeks) on Christmas Day and the week after Christmas.
