Consumer attitudes about holiday purchasing of apparel appear to have improved slightly.
A monthly survey of more than 7,500 consumers conducted by BIGresearch of Columbus, Ohio, found that the share of shoppers who intend to buy women’s casual and women’s dress apparel in the next three months moved up in September from August. The reasons for the uptick weren’t clear, but gas prices have dropped and the government has bailed out Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the largest U.S. mortgage finance companies.
