Shoppers are spending on discretionary goods again — here's what they're buying
from Footwear News
Retailers are seeing a resurgence of interest in discretionary goods as coronavirus-related restrictions continue to ease. According to a new report from The NPD Group, shoppers in the United States have "expanded their spending consideration set" as state and local governments lift lockdown orders amid the COVID-19 health crisis. Consumers appeared to have shifted their spend from fashion merchandise to utilitarian and home necessities when the outbreak took hold in the country. However, the market research firm reported that shoppers are increasingly showing interest in clothing and cosmetics, which saw week-over-week dollar gains in April and May.
