David Jones Pty Limited


David Jones Pty Limited (David Jones) is seeking re-authorisation to invite current and future suppliers, which operate separate businesses within David Jones stores and/or conduct sales through David Jones' online retail store, to take part in and (with David Jones itself) give effect to David Jones promotions.

David Jones seeks re-authorisation for the proposed conduct for a period of 10 years. Previously, the ACCC has granted authorisation to David Jones for similar conduct on three separate occasions. Each authorisation was for a period of five years. The existing and most recent authorisation was granted on 26 March 2014.

Submissions about the application for re-authorisation have now closed. No submissions have been received. The ACCC expects to release a draft determination on the application for re-authorisation in March 2019.
