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. Our reports provide stakeholders with information on best-selling categories, in addition to what's trending up and what's trending down.
In 2013 we completed two reports: one for the giftware segment and the first ever report on the housewares category. The housewares-focused survey allows us to go in-depth into the independent market, unearthing the stocking percentages, buying trends and popular price points for 38 unique housewares categories. It also allows for some comparison with giftware retailers on key metrics. 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.
