August 20th, 2008, 03:56 AM #1Are Clothing Sales Booming In The US?
Over in the UK clothing sales have soared this July/August.
Latest figures from the IMRG Capgemini e-Retail Sales Index show that £4.8bn was spent by UK shoppers on the internet in July.
Sales rose 11.3% on the previous month - a sharp comparison to British Retail Consortium figures which showed that high street sales for July had dropped 0.9% month-on-month.
The unseasonal wet weather was blamed for keeping people away from the shops - and they got their credit cards out and started clicking instead, sending online clothing sales up 23%.
Having looked at the Stats for the programs under our management, I can see August is even bigger than July (about 70% more) and I was wondering how the market is comparing in the USA?
Are merchants and affiliates seeing a net boom with online sales? Are traditional Malls feeling the pinch as more consumers spend online?

In other words, most years you might get a 15% rise in sales from May to June.. This year you only got a 11.3% rise... That shows that sales are DOWN.
