CURRENT REPORT
MarketPulse 2014

Since 2003, Retail News has undertaken annual surveys among the wide variety of retailers who sell giftware, home décor, housewares and fashion accessories. The objective has been to help retailers and CanGift members plan a more efficient and profitable business.

In 2014, our report provides stakeholders with information on best-selling categories, in addition to what's trending up and what's trending down for 32 different product categories. As well, we offer other statistics related to methods used by retailers to find new products, social media applications used to promote their businesses and the top-ranked issues impacting retailers. We would like to thank the retailers who participated in this survey for their dedication to providing the industry with meaningful and actionable statistics.

Also available here are PDF versions of past surveys that delve into areas such as key buying influences, supplier service, average annual turn-rates, mark-ups, sales volumes, operational statistics and product sourcing.
