He mentions the difficulty of finding workers and the high turnover of employees. The executive management of the store weighs him down as much as the competition. “There are banners that compete with us, whether it’s SSENSE for example, or Zara, that’s why I’m closing.

It’s time to try something else, time flies and you have to keep going. I want to move forward and rediscover the essence of creation. »
