TARGETING TOPSHOP: Topshop’s Oxford Circus store in London closed temporarily Saturday morning after some 200 people staged a sit-in to protest the tax status of Sir Philip Green, the retailer’s owner. The protest is part of a wider action in the U.K. against companies and individuals who are perceived to be tax dodgers. Vodafone has been another target. Green and his wife are longtime residents of Monte Carlo. Green’s retail group, Arcadia, is registered in the U.K. and pays taxes there. The protesters, organized by a group called UK Uncut, targeted other Arcadia-owned stores on Saturday, but no other closures were reported.
