Textiles Sales Up for Holidays, Says NPD
December 7, 2012,
PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y.-Christmas and Hanukkah are the only holidays in which retail sales of home textiles are rising, according to research from The NPD Group.
While not quantifying the size of the increase, Debra Mednick, NPD executive director for the home business, said this holiday season has brought a 36 percent increase in the average selling price for home textiles. "Splurging on products with a more luxurious look and feel can go a long way in getting the home ready for the holidays, or giving just the right gift," Mednick said.
