pdosulivan I havent checked Ocado recently but the last time I did the compnay was overly valued accroding to press reports I read and there had been profit taking due to the share price riise the last year which cause a correction. Lets not forget lockdown has increased online but when everyone returns to work things may change again. Also the competition for online is very fierce and too many players in the market.

Stephen Brindle18 Mar 2021 1:06PMIf I understand it correctly, Amazon is looking to purchase a food retailing chain, and as it has already linked up with Morrisons for home delivery, I wonder whether that is Amazon's target for a possible takeover in due course.... Daily Telegraph... Or maybe MKS is a target. Who knows.

Amazon is no grocery threat, says Ocado boss Ocado's average order size was £147 and Marks & Spencer food accounts for a quarter of all orders after it replaced WaitroseByLaura Onita18 March 2021 • 12:00pmThe boss of Ocado has dismissed the threat of losing ground to Amazon, calling it a "very small competitor". Tim Steiner, co-founder and chief executive of the FTSE 100 online retailer, said Amazon's impact on the UK grocery market was "negligible" and it would have to open "an awful lot of stores" to win a bigger slice of the market. The remarks came after Amazon opened its second till-free supermarket in London this week and launched its own-label range of hundreds of products."It doesn't mean it's not clever tech, but it won't have a big impact on the [grocery] market," said Mr Steiner, adding that the home delivery offering was almost at an "unnoticeable level" online. ...

Converting retail space to offices questionable says Retail Gazette there is already spare office space due to work at home Https://www.retailgazette.co.uk/blog/2021/03/should-retailers-launch-office-spaces-if-people-still-work-from-home/ When all the retail gets converted at enormous cost at that the retailers may find far more excess office space which cannot be rented out, its a foolish idea imo as more people can adequatley work from homs and more business will follow suit in due course due in part to advance in technology and video conference. There is no need to be in a room with other people when they can meet up and be part of video or computer technology.

Regarding previous....Richard Proudler16 Mar 2021 1:08PMSince nearly all shopping will be done online, including increasingly groceries, in the very very near future, this may very well just be the new model for ANY shop which survives as bricks and mortar.The use of total clear video cctv and the need to scan as you go in will easily spot a prospective shop lifter.This model in fact already in use in rural Sweden sees totally unpersoned ? stores where the manager is alerted by mobile messaging if things go awry.This could signal the return of local village remote smaller shop units which would be good if they have national price competition price levelsIt's a good thingLess motoring around for time burgling shoppingBut not for low pay shop workers3LikeReplyDe Ja Vu16 Mar 2021 2:15PM@Richard ProudlerA good thing! lol. yes let's give over control of everything essential to the likes of Amazon and big tech! Then when they have total control you will have no options on price, product choice or who then can stop buying food, etc.This is designed to kill off the small independents as has already started with the lockdowns.Wake up World!Daily Telegraph

Marks are rocketing up I can see £2.00 shortly . Great bounce back from £0.90 times. Nowhere better to put money and make money . Wonderfull. Thorntons was always a specialist make and had to be an acquired taste. No point having choc shops when the high street looks like it is dying a death slowly

John Lewis is to cut prices ahead of its reopening but it could be a gimic as there are ever ending sales these days and JL has them a number of times a year.

G R Umpy14 Mar 2021 12:01PMOne reason for the decline in UK manufacturing was that it was much easier for intelligent people to make money in financial services, so a lot of the best brains went into that rather than manufacturing. That is still largely the case.We import far more than we need to, and it would be better for us if we all tried to buy home manufactured products, or at least not from the EU!5LikeReplyThomas Gordon14 Mar 2021 12:09PM@G R UmpyThe biggest cost in manufacturing today is not Labour, it is energy.  High (and rising) energy costs will continue to hurt UK manufacturing1LikeReplyStefan Reichlin14 Mar 2021 12:10PM@Thomas Gordon @G R UmpySorry Thomas, that is not true.
