The Distillery: Zahra zips

Paul Zahra's decision to leave David Jones has jotters scratching their heads.

The shock departure of David Jones boss Paul Zahra has commentators in a spin, but none are subscribing to any wild theories. It is simply a case of someone failing to find joy in their job, according to one, while another puts it down to the never-ending challenges in the new retail world.

Elsewhere, one scribe peers in for a closer look at the ructions between suppliers and customers in the gas sector, as another calls for a cooling of investor expectation surrounding the Warrnambool Cheese and Butter takeover.
