Shoppers Show Confidence in Internet for
Nearly 29 million people bought gifts online during the 2001 holiday shopping season, a study from the Pew Internet & American Life Project found, and women did most of the buying.
The average amount spent online was $392 per person, the study found, up from an average of $330 spent by approximately 20 million shoppers during the 2000 holiday season.
More than half (58 percent) of those who bought holiday gifts online were women in 2001. And more shoppers of either gender claimed to have saved time and money by purchasing goods online. Fewer online shoppers complained about or worried about the potential hassles of purchasing goods online.

Store Sales Up 2.1 Per Cent In
Sales at US stores open at least a year, or same-store sales, rose 2.1 per cent in the month of December from a year earlier
as consumers took advantage of sales, data released by check-acceptance firm TeleCheck Services Inc showed on Thursday.
A year earlier, TeleCheck data put December same-store sales up 2.7 per cent.
"A long pre-Christmas shopping weekend helped buoy December retail sales by 2.1 per cent, just edging out
November's 1.9 per cent gain," said William Ford, TeleCheck's senior economic adviser. "As a result, the year ended on a positive note, albeit modest; and consumer confidence is on the rise again - a good sign moving into the New Year."
Sales climbed 2.5 per cent in the Southeast and Northeast regions, 2.4 per cent in the Southwest region, 2.1 per cent in the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic regions, and 1.8 per cent in the

Kmart - Running Out of Time
Industry buzz suggests that Kmart is lingering too long. All indicators suggest that Chapter 11 bankruptcy may not be far off. In fact, some say the move may be just what is needed to save the company.
For Clothing Makers,
It's Cut or Be Cut
The pain of sharp markdowns will be felt all the way down the retail food chain, though the brunt will be borne not by the stores, but by the apparel manufacturers and wholesalers that supply them.
Trouble among apparel makers, of course, is hardly headline news. Low-cost competition from overseas has been driving apparel manufacturing offshore, and retailers have been extracting steep concessions from their suppliers for years especially since the late 1980's, when bankruptcies and consolidations among retailers left fewer, but more powerful chains to buy the goods. For about a decade, department stores in particular have been using this strength to elicit concessions like "markdown money" the payments that retailers demand from manufacturers, after the season, to make up for whatever profits they lost by putting goods on sale.
