NEW YORK — The gloom is beginning to lift for department store beauty retailers, some of whom are so confident this season that they are entertaining ideas of ending the year with a tiny increase.
A number of major department stores are sure of finishing the year even with 2002, an achievement considering the last two years of downward-spiraling business. But that flatness comes at a great cumulative cost for vendors in terms of high-powered fragrance launches.
