Apparel and accessories stores are expected to generate a modest sales increase during the upcoming holiday season, but they’ll have to do it with fewer shoppers.
ShopperTrak, the Chicago-based firm that monitors and analyzes foot traffic in about 25,000 stores in North America, projects that apparel and accessories specialty stores will see sales in November and December rise 2.7 percent even as foot traffic declines 1.1 percent during the season.
