Retail Categories

Thanksgiving food costs are expected to soar 13.5% this year: Walmart, Aldi, and Lidl aim to use discounts on turkey, stuffing mix, and other holiday ingredients to attract new customers.

In a year plagued with rising prices and supply chain constraints, many retailers are hoping the holiday season will signal a return to normal. But according to Adobe, that may not be the case.

China’s COVID strategy continues to hurt retail sales: Estée Lauder and Canada Goose are among the high-end brands pointing to China’s policy as a reason they’re lowering their outlooks.

The store-within-a-store’ concept gains momentum: The partnerships work well when there’s clear synergy between the brands involved, such as Target and Apple.

Shein embraces resale: But allowing US shoppers to buy and sell previously owned items will do little to counter serious critiques of the company’s labor practices and environmental policies.

Inflation drives high-income consumers to trade down—and up: Affluent shoppers are spending more at Walmart and Aldi, but a strong dollar is keeping luxury demand robust.

Last week, Goodwill launched GoodwillFinds, an ecommerce platform for thrifters across the US.

Shein’s expanding its US distribution centers in an effort to expand its American market. That’s good news for US customers, who currently wait up to 15 days for deliveries from the Chinese brand.

Naver sets its sights on the US with Poshmark acquisition: The South Korean tech giant plans to use its resources and ecommerce capabilities to create a “socially responsible and sustainable shopping experience.”

On today's episode, in our "Retail Me This, Retail Me That" segment, we discuss the reasons Chinese fast-fashion giant Shein has been so successful as of late. Then for "Red-Hot Retail," our analysts give us their very specific—and potentially risky—predictions about the future of Shein. Join our analyst Sara Lebow as she hosts analysts Sky Canaves and Jasmine Enberg.

Plant-based meat sales are declining: While rising prices are causing some consumers to trade down to cheaper proteins, there’s still plenty of interest in alternatives to animal products.

Amazon’s second shopping event for Prime members will take place October 11 and 12. The event, called the Prime Early Access Sale, will be virtually the same as Amazon’s Prime Day held earlier this year.

Walmart’s holiday messaging focuses on convenience and value: The retailer introduces three new returns options and price rollbacks in key categories.

Stitch Fix ended its 2022 fiscal year on a less-than-stellar note.

High-end luxury is having a moment. Consumers in this category haven’t been hurt by inflation the same way the average US consumer has, so brands need to elevate to hold onto them.

On today's episode, in our "Retail Me This, Retail Me That" segment, we discuss how to define luxury retail, how much luxury brands can raise their prices, and how they are elevating themselves. Then for "Pop-Up Rankings," we rank the top four examples of luxury brands that are expanding their reach. Join our analyst Sara Lebow as she hosts analysts Sky Canaves and Zak Stambor.

The top product category for US luxury buyers is footwear, followed by handbags and leather goods, cosmetics and beauty products, and fragrance. Less than one-third of these shoppers bought accessories such as eyewear, jewelry, and watches in the past year.

The average US social buyer will spend $518 via this channel in 2022, up 26.9% from last year. Annual spend will increase by $419 per buyer over the next three years, reaching $937 in 2025.

It seems like everyone is getting in on the nonfungible token (NFT) trend these days, and New York Fashion Week (NYFW) was no exception.
