Why Apparel E-Retailers Are Causing Store Closures

The second largest e-commerce market is growing at better than 20% at the expense stores.

Apparel is the heart of American retailing. More retailers are devoted to selling it than any other form of merchandise. So when that market shifts dramatically in one year from store-based retailing to the web, it's a big deal. That shift occurred last year, when web sales of apparel grew 20.4% to $70.9 billion, while apparel stores grew a mere 1%. In just 12 months, the web's share of U.S. apparel sales grew to 17.9% from 15.5%.

This report examines the current largest and fastest-growing competitors in web apparel, and the reasons for their success, including the merchandise they sell, their prices, demographics of their shoppers and the most effective digital marketing techniques to attract shoppers. The report examines the 250 of the top 1,000 e-retailers in the U.S. which are primarily engaged in selling apparel and explains the differences between those outperforming the market and those falling short.
