“Department stores have reinvented themselves. They have become destination stores for younger customers offering aspirational brands, complemented by great own brands. The best department stores recognise that a store is much more than somewhere to just buy products, it should be a leisure destination with a retail offering that is stimulating and inspiring. So it is hardly surprising that John Lewis and House of Fraser are outperforming and M&S is in decline.”
– Tamara Sender, Senior Fashion Analyst
This report answers the following questions:
In an increasingly competitive retail market there are many department stores that are outperforming. But sector growth is held back by the weakness of the largest company in our sector definition, M&S.
All retailing is becoming more demanding, but we think that the most successful in recent years – John Lewis and House of Fraser - provide a blueprint for successful stores in the future. They stand out for their great brands, complemented by strong own brands, combined with first-rate service in attractive, well maintained stores with plenty of places to take a break. But on top of that they have a slick online proposition which must be as compelling as the physical outlets.
