French Connection: fashion retailer posts mixed results

While total growth at French Connection was up 4% in H1 2009, sales for the UK and Europe were down 1.3% driven mainly by the poor performance of its wholesaling division. However, 11 new concessions in House of Fraser stores drove retail growth in the UK and Europe up 7.7%. While the retailer will benefit from recent product range investment, it is essential that it continues to manage its costs.

Fuel retail: Ireland gears up for first motorway service stations

Several new motorway service stations are expected to open on the Emerald Isle over the next couple of years, and leading petrol retailers such as Statoil [STL.OL], Esso and Texaco would be foolish not to seize this fresh opportunity to capture a larger share of the Irish market for both fuel and non-fuel products.

Fuel retailers use loyalty promotions to highlight their non-fuel products and services

In February, two major fuel retailers launched promotions in an attempt to generate loyalty and promote higher margin, non-fuel products and services. However, with a recent Verdict survey indicating that European motorists are more concerned about fuel prices and service station location and less about brand loyalty, retailers will find it difficult to make customers interested in such schemes.

Fuel retailing: Ireland still waiting for motorway services

The Irish National Roads Authority has stated that there will be no new motorway service stations in Ireland until 2009 at the earliest, partly because of lack of interest. However, this seems somewhat surprising as, if executed correctly, oil companies could profit from running motorway service stations in the country.

Game Group: had the gain, now for the pain

Fears of a major slump in the previously buoyant video games market have been realized by a trading update from market leader Game Group. The highly cyclical nature of the sector has been highlighted by the dual release of Game's figures for the 53 weeks to January 31, 2009, in which total UK and Ireland sales were up 25.7%, and for the 11 weeks to April 18, 2009, in which they were down 2.4%.

GM foods: give it time

After a five year long moratorium on growing and commercializing GM foods, the EU has authorized the entry of a GM product onto the market. European consumers are still unconvinced, and the biotechnology companies behind the products fear the public may reject them. However consumers may learn to accept GM, first in nutraceuticals, and then in mainstream foods.
