These items are sold to women 15-27.
Smiggle- They sell cutesy stationary supplies to children 6-10, teenage girls 15-17 and older women 40. Price does not matter her, as it is a stationary shop.
With all the information I have collected above, it is clear to me that all the clothing stores that are owned by the Just Group sell mass produced garments and by acquiring these company’s it gives them a larger range of sales, age groups, price points and also destroys the competition.
The competitors of The Just Group are Cotton on as they cater to both men’s, kids and women’s clothing needs and cotton on has lower prices on clothing, jeans $20- blanket wrap coat $30.
The Just Group has said this about working with suppliers.
“The Just Group will not knowingly deal with any
supplier who uses under-age, forced or illicit
labour of any kind.” http://www.justgroup.com.au/pdf/JG_Annualreview07.pdf
This assures the customer that what they are getting is not made in unfair conditions, but, it also gives them plausible deniability that if any of there clothes are made in those conditions they can deny it and still save face, a underhand tactic.
Just Jeans has mentioned in their Annual Review of 2007 that there goal still remains the same.
“Our goal remains to make our company one of
the most exciting and desirable places to work
In Australia and New Zealand.” http://www.justgroup.com.au/pdf/JG_Annualreview07.pdf
In the 2011 strategic review their management continued the implementation of the six key objectives and their strategy’s that were completed in 2014:
- Rejuvenate and reinvigorate all five core apparel brands.
- Organisation-wide cost efficiency program.
- Two phase gross margin expansion program.
- Expand and grow the internet business.
- Grow Peter Alexander significantly.
- Grown Smiggle significantly.
The Just Group does not offer promotions directly but each of there business does offer certain promotions at the same time.

As you can see from this data all the sales are finishing only a day or so a part from each other.
With the information I have gathered the information it clearly states that they sync there sales around the same time, I believe they do this for convenience as well as a sales tactic, by having there sales at the same time they can put customers into a buying frenzy and with the discount prices they go store to store buying clothes they probably don’t want or need, it also streamlines there back office work.
Just Jeans has become a more online store since the internet boom, the same can be said for Jay Jays, Portman’s, Petter Alexander, Jacqui E, Alexander, Dotti and Smiggle, they now get all there customers by social media now and even have there look books online, they don’t have any commercial’s on TV anymore I believe they do this save money, except for smiggle as that’s a stationery.
From the data I have collected I can honestly conclude that they have a great commercial success as in 2014 annual review there was a reported online sales growth of 30.5% across the whole chain of stores, I believe this to be, because of the launched a “store to door” offer across there chian of stores.
In 2014 they increased their profits by 13.4% and made 87 million.
For the future of the Just Group I see them expanding there business even more, possibly even taking over more low quality company’s and expanding there reach in the business world.
