Take advantage of demise of Comet

Robin Millwood, CIH chairman, told retailers and manufacturers at this year’s CIH Suppliers’ Lunch at the Dorchester not to miss out on the opportunities afforded by the closure of Comet. He said: “With the demise of Comet, there could and should be a large share coming our way and we will be calling meetings in the New Year to discuss this with you. Because, unless you handle it carefully, you will have two large dogs – DSG and DRL – wagging their tails and you, the suppliers, will not be able to control them or what will happen to an already troubled market-place. We will also need your support to handle the business-to-business opportunities that are appearing since Comet failed and the void it left.”
