THE DISTILLERY: Retail rivalry

The scribes pit Woolworths against Wesfarmers, and speculate on the wash-up from Caltex's Kurnell closure.

Australia's scribes love a good retail rivalry, and there's none bigger than the one between Woolworths and a resurgent Wesfarmers. Now that both companies have handed down their final-quarter sales results there's the usual debate about which battles each company is winning and why, and also some interesting thoughts on the deflationary curse that has been cast over both groups. Elsewhere, ink is spilled over the closure of Caltex's Kurnell refinery in Sydney, and Qantas' talks with Emirates.
