Premier Investments, which owns Just Jeans, Peter Alexander and Portmans, has reported a 29 per cent rise in full-year profit and is willing to close more stores if landlords do not reduce rents in the COVID-19 era.

Solomon Lew’s company used government subsidies and online sales to reap a $137.8 million net profit after tax for the 12 months to July 25.

While many people did not visit shops due to fear of contracting the coronavirus, they still spent money via the internet, which helped Premier’s online sales jump 48.8 per cent to $220.4 million.

The Peter Alexander chain was a standout. Its sales rose 16...

Virgin's future in Queensland is in doubt after the state opposition pledged to break off talks.
Camera IconVirgin’s future in Queensland is in doubt after the state opposition pledged to break off talks.

Queensland Treasurer Cameron Dick will “double-down” on striking a $200 million investment deal with Virgin Australia after the LNP opposition promised to end the talks.

The state Labor government is in negotiations to invest $200 million in the carrier, which was acquired for $3.5 billion by American fund Bain Capital earlier this month.

The government and airline reportedly have an in-principle agreement, but a formal deal is yet to be signed.

Liberal National Party deputy leader Tim Mander says if a deal still hasn’t been struck before the October 31 state election, his party will scrap the talk...

GOP avoids T-word in transition pushback

“Well, we’re going to have to see what happens. You know that,” Trump said. “I’ve been complaining very strongly about the ballots. And the ballots are a disaster.”

Trump, when pressed later, said, “We want to have — get rid of the ballots and you’ll have a very trans- — we’ll have a very peaceful — there won’t be a transfer, frankly; there’ll be a continuation,” in an apparent suggestion that he will either win reelection or remain in power regardless.

Democrats seized on Trump and his comments, demanding that Republicans publicly condemn them. 

On the Senate floor Thursday, Minority Leader Charles E...

The northern link and southern options would be linked by proposed new road infrastructure within the already planned Oakajee Narngulu I...

In a statement Rockingham Beach Cup committee chairwoman Donna McDonald said COVID19 safety directions and guidelines for events led to the “difficult decision” to cancel the event.

“It is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of the Channel 7 Rockingham Beach Cup & Carnival 20...

Celestron PowerSeeker 80AZS telescope: Full review


The Celestron PowerSeeker 80AZS is a “grab and go” telescope that’s built for celestial and terrestrial views. Given its total weight of 10 lbs. (4.54 kilograms), it’s also exceedingly lightweight, making it suitable for beginners and families.

At the Races: Supreme politics

And the award goes to: Georgia Sen. Kelly Loeffler has our vote for the most bizarre political ads so far this cycle, with two spots asserting she is more conservative than Attila the Hun. The ads feature a grunting actor in period costume who appears to order an attack on China, the elimination of “liberal scribes” and the persecution of various offenders of conservative values. But, in our opinion, Loeffler’s ad falls short of Carly Fiorina’s 2010 “Demon Sheep” spot in the ranking of weirdest ads of all time. 

Let the triaging begin: It’s getting to be that time of year when outside groups start to triage — move money from races that are no longer Toss-ups. According to the firm Medium Buying, the DCCC pulled money out of Maine; Scranton, Pennsylvania; and Detroit...
