Hit-and-Run retail has impact
Rebecca Stevenson, Dominion Post

POP-UP retail is growing like topsy. And yes, the clues as to what pop-up retail are all in the name.

It is a temporary shop that may pop up overnight, operate for a day or a week, and then, poof, be gone.

Retail benefits of Cup challenged
Nick Krause, The Marlborough Express

The retail prosperity promised during the Rugby World Cup could disappoint the sector, an industry commentator says.

With government and Reserve Bank estimates of the tournament boosting the economy by $500 million to $700m, the crunch will be whether New Zealand attracts the 85,000 anticipated visitors, how long they will stay and how much they will spend.
