Thanks James. When you see the likes of H&M and Uniqlo and reportedly Marks & Spencer and Next to open stores in Australia, that should give some comfort on the retail environment, however I don't think the increased competition bodes well for the likes Myer and DJ's.

It is a good article, with all the additional money being spent on the malls I wonder if there is a precedent for expected returns for the retailers that end up letting the space. I would also suggest a fair assumption that the investors backing the developments are expecting a rosier retail environment in the coming years.
