As many retailers retreat to online selling, Nordstrom is betting big on bricks and mortar. One of the last remaining retail dynasties, the multibrand monolith opens its first New York shop tomorrow.

America Is on the Move Again - And This Is Where They're Going. America Is on the Move Again - And This Is Where They're Going.
No, Texas. Everyone doesn't want to move there, despite population trends showing that six of the 10 fastest-growing counties in the country are in the Lone Star State. Same goes for you, Arizona. Sure, you're growing, but not at the rate you were prior to the Great Recession. And California? You're only getting bigger at a faster rate than the national average because of immigration. You're actua...

When it comes to food retail, few concepts come close to La Grande Epicerie, the LVMH-backed Paris emporium featured in Monocle’s March issue. Today, however, the leading German food retailer Zurheide Feine Kost is launching its latest supermarket concept in Düsseldorf and it promises to offer a glimpse into the future of the industry.

Justin Trudeau has followed up an irksome visit to India with a blundering welcome for Belgium’s royal delegation. Justin Trudeau has followed up an irksome visit to India with a blundering welcome for Belgium’s royal delegation.
After a chaotic official visit to India three weeks ago, Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau might be forgiven for wanting to hunker down, close the curtains and stay firmly on home soil. Alas, a fresh diplomatic embarrassment is brewing this week – and it’s on his doorstep. First, Belgium’s King Philippe and Queen Mathilde were greeted in Ottawa by the wrong flag: Germany’s was mistake...

Italy’s centre-left Democratic Party (PD) will today officially recognise party leader (and former PM) Matteo Renzi’s resignation, which he announced last week in the wake of his party’s disappointing electoral performance.

Judge rules Trump’s DACA phaseout legal. Judge rules Trump’s DACA phaseout legal.
A federal judge ruled Monday that President Trump’s phaseout of the Obama-era DACA program is legal, adding heft to the administration’s defense but doing little to solve the ongoing court quagmire. The ruling does not overturn two other federal courts, who had previously blocked the phaseout, which was supposed to take effect Monday. But it does offer a needed boost as the Justice Department a...

Over in Europe, the populist political upstarts at Alternative for Germany. Over in Europe, the populist political upstarts at Alternative for Germany.
The right-wing German party AfD takes its cues from Donald Trump with a direct line to their audience. As Donald Trump’s White House has shown, if you want to get a message to your supporters you’ve got to go direct. Yes, Fox News is a supportive outlet but no medium finds its mark quite like a rage-inducing tweet from the president’s own thumbs. Over in Europe, the populist political upstar...
