NEW YORK — Apparel and accessories are stars in cyberspace this holiday and have already surpassed their online sales during holiday 2001 — in last week’s receipts alone.
Cyber sales of apparel and accessories for the week ended Dec. 13 soared 39 percent over a year ago, totaling $1.3 billion and outpacing the broader 37 percent growth in online sales to consumers, which totaled $2.2 billion — a weekly record on the Internet, according to online ratings agency comScore Networks. The weekly apparel and accessories results outstripped the sector’s sales for November and December 2001, which tallied $1.27 billion.
