Sobering times for the red shed

Shared Lunch

NZ’s biggest retailer The Warehouse Group is getting  back to basics after writing off Torpedo7, declining sales and plans to exit e-commerce venture     

We talk to acting CFO Celia Mearns following the Red Shed’s half year results. Celia shares the challenges of online sales and competing with the likes of Temu. 

You’ll also find out how the retailer will navigate ongoing economic headwinds, why the grocery business is a bright spot, and that the ‘everybody gets a bargain’ jingle is… here to stay!
