According to Brian Walker, CEO and Founder of The Retail Doctor, "Australian retail is on a conservative growth path, with retail spending showing acceleration in late 2013, however, many ASX-listed companies have failed to capitalise on these improvements". Brian goes on to explore the habits and actions of the more successful retailers over the last few years, including:
- Maintaining floor space.
- Acting strategically rather than tactically.
- Having solid brand differentiation.
- Concentrating on controlling all aspects of their operations.
- Understanding their customers.
