Blog: Chris MercerLuxury retailers prune wine offerings

Chris Mercer | 16 August 2010

In the latest twist on the road to economic redemption, just-drinks understands that most of the high-end retailers in the UK are streamlining their wine offerings.

Luxury retailers, and that would include the likes of Harvey Nichols and Harrods, have been cutting back on the number of wines that they stock, just-drinks hears from a well-placed industry source. This is being done for predominantly economic reasons.

The development adds to a general sense that the UK economy is far from out of the woods, despite having officially left recession for dust with GDP growth of 0.0000001% (not an official figure) in early 2010.
