Retailers shop Project to find new and different lines they haven't seen before.
A softer economy might be causing retailers to look again at their open-to-buy budgets. But store owners and buyers agree that they are saving as many dollars as they can for Project, where they hope to find lines they've never seen before, and source categories other than denim. The key, they say, is to balance innovative and avant-garde finds with pieces that can be a guaranteed success.
