NEW YORK — President George W. Bush will make a rare speaking engagement at the National Association of Chain Drug Stores’ Annual Meeting this week, and he is a fitting choice, as the mass market cosmetics business is showing its first healthy sales gains since his early days in office.
Drugstore cosmetics sales rose 4 percent between 2002 and 2003 to $1.7 billion. Similarly, this year the category has gained 3.5 percent, according to data from Symphony/IRI Group, following depressed sales between 2009 and 2010.
