Colourful entrepreneur and owner of The Range, Chris Dawson, has predicted that he will be picking up stock from more failing retailers a year from now.
He said he expects to be able to pick up more stock this way: “We’ve been talking to several European retailers who are about to call it a day.”
“Has anyone got a business that is entering collapse?” he asked the audience. “You are not going to tell me. I’m the grim reaper.”
Dawson also revealed that his sector of the market - which he defined as mid range value for money - was where he sees the future of retail, and he has recently been offered “telephone numbers” for his business.
