Amazon’s Prime Day discount event usually has the ability to deliver some surprises and with the delayed event due to happen on October 13 and 14, there’s a prediction it could be much smaller than in previous years.
News on Tuesday that previous owner JD Sports had bought back Go Outdoors in a £56.5m pre-pack deal, was accompanied by the retail giant saying it would work to preserve as many of the 2,400 jobs at the chain as it can.
JD Sports may be one of the most successful retailers in the UK, but it's not immune to problems linked to the coronavirus crisis and on Saturday it was reported that it's to throw in the towel with Go Outdoors.
JD Sports has reacted angrily after the competition watchdog decided to ban its Footasylum buy. Given that the company has already taken control of its smaller peer, it means it now has to sell the Footasylum business.
