WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS?
Personal styling technology. Does it limit what my customer will buy?
A question we get asked a lot at HOLM is whether personal styling technology limits customer choice. Good fashion retailers are proud of their entire collections, so is it not bad business to tell a customer which five or six dresses she should be wearing? We agree. The HOLM app was designed to curate rather[…]

Nearly 22,000 retail jobs hit: is e-commerce completely to blame?
Retail news? Barely a week goes by without another chain parading its woes: announcing profit warnings, negotiations with creditors and store closures. BBC News today reported that 22,000 retail jobs are at risk in 2018 alone.
