Given the massive retail slowdown, the opening of the first Topshop was already quite an achievement unto itself. As it stands, nearly every aspect of retail (except menswear) is experiencing negative growth. Topshop most certainly plans and wants to expand into the US, but I’m not sure that now is the time to do that.posted over 7 years ago
I don’t think Phil Green has a line of bankers going out the door begging to drop off loads of credit at his footstep. Lending criteria are getting increasingly stringent and the American middle-class is particularly scared as commodity prices have increased. The amount of disposable income is rapidly vanishing as fixed payments like mortgages and medical bills consume more of the average person’s paycheck. Normally, most folks would have equity to help shore up their credit, but as housing values have plummeted, there’s less of that to go around, too.
In short, yes. I think today’s economy will stop Phil Green. Or slow him down significantly.posted over 7 years ago
WHAT?! Did I read something about a topshop opening in NYC???? WHEN OH WHEN?!posted over 7 years ago
I work for Arcadia – topshop and tbh nothing with this “credit crunch” has affected our sales. We’re doing better than ever. You can’t slow down determination, I’m sure him or some other big wig there will find a wayposted over 7 years ago
Sales are not the singular factor that determines the viability of expansion. Whether or not your customers have credit is entirely separate from whether or not banks will offer up credit for projects that are driven not by revenue, but capital.posted over 7 years ago
on my recent trip to israel i got to go into my first topshop. i was sooo excited.
love at first sight, and i wanted to buy everything, but it was too hard to convert everything from sheckels to us money to figure out the prices =)posted over 7 years ago
I’d stay and debate this but I’ve much better things to be doing. I know what I’ve been educated to believing, and I’d disagree with all of what you said.posted over 7 years ago
