NPD: Sets Strong in Tabletop
November 27, 2012,
PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y.-The set business is strong in dinnerware, beverageware and flatware, according to a recent report from market research firm The NPD Group.
"Sets account for a larger share of market dollars than individual pieces," said Debra Mednick, executive director of The NPD Group's home business. "Rather than spending a premium on individual pieces, consumers can get everything they need in a neat package with the added benefit of saving some money."
