What a year it’s been in the world of retail.

Activists took aim at plenty of companies (hello PetSmart, eBay and Family Dollar), major retailers announced CEO changes (J.C. Penney, Home Depot, Walmart US and Target) in a year that was particularly full of them, there were truces between bitter enemies (LVMH and Hermès) and even changes in fortune for long struggling retailers (books sales are rising again at Barnes & Noble.)

Before we turn our attention to 2015, which will be chock full of more drama in retail-land as the improving landscape will make it harder for underperforming retailers to make this weakness, let’s have a look at the action-packed year that was.
