NEW YORK — While most jeans vendors reported a rise in first-half sales, they agreed that a big question concerning second-half business will be retail inventories.
As is common during down economic times, many retailers last year cut their stock levels dramatically, leaving them with less inventory than they wanted coming into the spring season. They’ve now rebuilt inventories for back-to-school selling and the question becomes whether b-t-s sales will meet their expectations.
