JD sports has been on the acquisition trail again with news that it's bought menswear retailer Oi Polloi. It's also been reported that CEO Peter Cowgill could step back from day-to-day control of JD this year.
One of the most distinctive landmarks in central London retail is up for sale. The former Topshop flagship on Oxford Circus, the jewel in crown of the dismantled Arcadia Group empire, is valued at around £420 million.
UK sportswear retail giant JD Sports has signed resale firm Sole Responsibility as an official sustainability partner. And the reason's clear. It's saved more than 60,000 pairs of trainers from landfill or incineration.
JD Sports continued its long run of powerful results reports on Tuesday. And the theme was ‘retention’ as it retained most of the sales and profits that would have happened in stores when it was trading online only.
