Retailers do want new merchandise — they just want it faster than ever before.
Coming off of what many consider the worst fall-winter shopping season ever, retailers had already cut back on orders for spring and were understandably even more conservative when ordering fall merchandise back in February. But as consumers’ moods seem to brighten and wallets open a crack, retailers are finding shoppers are feeling an urge to buy at least some new clothes. As a result, specialty stores are running low on merchandise and are nervous that come fall, they won’t have enough either. So many are placing orders for immediate deliveries.
