Recently, we released our quarterly Global Retail Manufacturers and Importers Survey. This quarter, we saw that our clients, importers who sell to America’s major retailers, are seeing an increase in orders for the fall/back-to-school season.
Key highlights from the survey include:
• Importers and wholesalers believe back to school will be 3-5 percent stronger than last year
• One-third of respondents are seeing an uptick in orders of 3-5 percent for the fall season
• 41 percent believe the 2013 summer season will be stronger than last year
• The majority of respondents saw an uptick in orders and re-orders this summer
