Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/03/2014 -- During 2012, the category faced the economic downturn, and responded with store and brand rationalisation, closing down non-performing stores or changing brands, as in the case of Upim, or catering to specific customer groups, as in the case of Oviesse and OVS Industry, catering to the fast fashion consumer, or the strengthening of the offer in a specific category, as in the case of Coin, which is building critical mass in the children's category with OVS Kids, Blu Kids and Iana, the children's apparel chain that was acquired in 2011 from Unitessile.
In terms of sales, the leading brand is Agora Group's Regina/Sogegross. Sales are good despite the economic crisis, and the key reason for success is a decrease in margins so as to meet customers' needs for lower prices. By focusing on loyalty, customers will keep on coming back once the recession is over.

Sales in the mixed retailers category are not expected to improve in the short term. The current economic crisis went so deep into consumers' wallets that it will take time before they go back to pre-crisis spending. However, department stores have an opportunity in the development of concessions inside the outlets, which can become a destination for permanent or temporary stores for brands to showcase their products in a wide number of locations, avoiding the need to invest in building new stores themselves.
