“Apparel makers and retailers…are changing their production and selling schedules for shoppers who increasingly want to buy their clothes in season,” the paper reports.
At the same time, club stores like Costco and BJ’s have been unveiling smaller unit sizes to increase frequency of consumer visits. “The concept that club stores are only for stock-up visit—I don’t think that’s true anymore,” a BJ’s exec told the paper.
If this consumer trend continues, they can’t be.
