ATLANTA — Southeast retailers ordering spring merchandise at AmericasMart Apparel were buying with more confidence than recent seasons, as they reported a pickup in consumer spending this fall.
With fall sales boosted by color, buyers said spring’s lively palettes would continue to generate business. Buyer attendance at the show, which ran Oct. 16-20, increased 2 percent compared with last October, according to Lawton Hall, senior vice president of AmericasMart Apparel.
