1. boohoo taps Mirakl tech for Debenhams online marketplace push
Fashion retailer, boohoo group, has launched a Debenhams online marketplace, powered by Mirakl technology.
Earlier this year, pureplay boohoo bought the Debenhams brand and website for £55 million and decided not to take on any of the firm’s high street stores or its workforce.
It says that, with this latest move, it is looking to create the UK’s largest marketplace across fashion, beauty, sport and homeware.
Debenhams has thus far made around 200 new brands available through the new offering, and new suppliers and brands are joining weekly.
