March 1, 2006

For years now catalogers have been talking about the rise of niche players: catalogs with unique products serving relatively small customer bases. This year’s list of the top 200 catalogs as measured by customer (housefile) growth rates brings that trend into stark relief.

For example, Music Stand (No. 1) sells music-themed apparel, gifts and accessories; M&M’s World (No. 2) markets licensed products with the candy theme; and Nu Nubian (No. 15) offers Africa-themed textiles, books and other goods.

Redcats’ Brand Revival
May 1, 2005

The name Brylane traditionally has been synonymous with deliberate sales growth and budget-priced, conservative clothing primarily for middle-aged, large-sized women.
