High street at risk of being 'smashed' by weak spending
The Sports Direct boss, Mike Ashley, has warned that Debenhams and other big retail names faced being “smashed to pieces” by a savage high street downturn this Christmas as Brexit worries put the brakes on spending. “November was the worst on record, unbelievably bad,” said Ashley. “No one could have budgeted for that. Retailers just cannot take that kind of November. It will literally smash them to pieces.”
