Marie Claire to launch beauty retail business
Womens fashion magazine Marie Claire has unveiled plans to enter the beauty retail market by partnering with Ocado Group subsidiary Speciality Stores.
Owned by Time Inc, the magazine will be launching a premium beauty and wellbeing business where shoppers can purchase from stores and online.
The new venture will be led by Amanda Scott, who is currently head of buying for beauty and accessories at John Lewis. As managing director, Scott will work closely with Marie Claire’s publishing director, Justine Southall.
Jackie Newcombe, managing director of Time Inc UK’s luxury brands, said: “Marie Claire’s influence in the beauty sector is unparalleled, both with consumers and beauty companies, and especially now that the way that women are buying beauty products is changing rapidly. Our beauty proposition will reflect those changes and we will offer outstanding service, thanks to the partnership with Ocado, who have expertise in this area without equal.”
