Sears losing market share to Goodwill in women's clothing

Among Sears' struggles is the fact that most women have ceased to think of it as a place to buy their clothes. Just 1% of shoppers say Sears is their favorite place for that, according to survey in January by Prosper Analytics & Insights for the National Retail Federation.

According to Prosper, Sears has dropped as a preferred destination in other categories, too, even, slightly, in appliances last month. But in women’s clothing in particular, shopper preference share for Sears dropped 53% year over year. Last month, Sears ranked 15th, behind Goodwill.

 

Study: Men Spend More on Clothing Than Women—and the Reason Is Obvious


A new study has found that men spend more per month on clothing than women—a fact that should surprise exactly no one. According to a survey by the Ogilvy-owned public relations firm The Boutique, adult men in America spend about $85 per month on clothing, and women spend an average of $75. This beer money-level disparity, along with the relatively newfound interest men have in personal style, will contribute to the menswear market growing faster than the ladies' segment. By 2017, overall menswear sales are expected to reach $110.3 billion, according to the study, which would mean a growth rate of about 8.3 percent.

 

Men Spend More Money and Time On Clothes Shopping Than Women

 

American men spend $10 more than women on clothing and accessories each month, according to a new survey from the Boutique @ Ogilvy, a fashion public-relations firm. The company’s poll of 1,232 men aged 18 and up found that they spent an average of $85 per month, compared to the average woman’s $75. Accordingly, the report estimates that the menswear market will expand at almost twice the rate of womenswear, growing 8.3 percent to become a $110.3 billion market. The $85-$75 split was first reported last year by Budget Sense, which also found that men spend 20 percent more time shopping than women do each week: three hours, compared to women’s two and a half.
