Tis the season to keep the tills a ringing

Arthur Ryan, Chair of Primark has been voted the 5th most influential person in British fashion in the industry trade magazine Drapers. The company continues to thrive on the Uk high street, showing a 20% increase in total sales for the year to Sept.12th. After negative press and store protests over ethical trading issues Ryan appointed an ethical trade director and almost doubled the audits on its supply factories to 1,000 in 2009.  Though if sales are any indicator it seems in the recession the price at the till remains the predominant cost on a high street fashionista's mind.
