Staff Staff -- Home Textiles Today, August 4, 2010
San Luis Obispo, Calif. - Online retail site Shopatron, which allows vendors to take online orders and pass them to local retailers for fulfillment, said its second quarter same-store sales rose 15% across all client stores.
The juvenile industry outperformed the average at 20% and home furnishings at 19%.
Shopatron attributed some of the overall growth to a general increase in consumer spending, but also noted rising online sales in industries that have been slower to sell on line.
