I find Shop-Eat-Surf to be a very useful and informative site that I enjoy browsing daily. Shop-Eat-Surf is the first thing I look at every morning to keep up-to-date on the latest talk, events, and happenings in the industry. I must say I am a fan of Shop-Eat-Surf.

It pertains to my business
It pertains to my business

I’m an avid reader of Shop-Eat-Surf because it’s really the only online newsletter that I have found that is not only industry related, but also because it’s not so “guy-centric.” I find that a lot of the information I read on the site pertains to my business (as a swimwear designer) and keeps me up to date on what other companies and other women in the industry in general are doing which is not only inspiring but also helps me gauge the future direction of my business as well.

I feel privileged to read the Executive Edition because I know I am getting insider industry information before it hits the mainstream media channels. And it’s always good to know what my friends are up to in the industry.

VF Corp. and Puma are among the bidders for winter outerwear company Helly Hansen, according to an unsourced report in the Sunday Times in the UK.

 

VF Corp. and now PPR, which owns Puma, are major players in the action sports and outdoor industries, of course. PPR owns Volcom and VF Corp. owns Vans, Timberland and North Face.

 

Both VF Corp and PPR have repeatedly stated they wanted to make more acquisitions in the outdoor and action sports arenas.

 

The report stated that Helly Hansen could be worth as much as 200 million pounds, about $312 million.
