SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — The bright skies over The Phoenician Hotel here mirrored the overall mood at The National Association of Chain Drug Stores’ Annual Meeting held from April 30 through Tuesday. With cosmetics sales running more than 8 percent above the same period last year, according to industry sales tracking firms, mass beauty executives said they are optimistic about the future.
The gains come after two years of challenges. In 2009, sales were flat to down, and last year volume started trickling in with 3 percent average gains.
