The off-price industry is enjoying a heyday in which more national retailers are turning to the channel looking for a boost, and the OFFPRICE Show in Las Vegas remains a vital place to go for stores of all sizes from across the country.
This year’s summer show, held in August at the Sands Expo & Convention Center during Las Vegas Fashion Week, not only saw an uptick in attendance, but also in net square footage.
The footprint of the showfloor increased from 131,000 net square feet last year to 135,300 net sq. ft. at this year’s event.
“It was my first time to OFFPRICE and won’t be my last,” said Linda Audette, from The Plus Factor. “Very well laid out and organized. I deal primarily with plus size fashion so [prioritized] those specific booths from the online info and navigated right through, saving me a lot of time. I found many new suppliers and placed several orders.”
Once again, retailers from all 50 states were at the show, scouring the showfllor for the latest apparel, accessories and footwear to add to their shelves and racks. International retailers also flocked to the show, with attendance climbing to 1,056.
“Retailers across the globe have discovered the significance of the off-price industry,” said Stephen Krogulski, CEO of OFFPRICE.
He added, “Recently, national retail stores have debuted new off-price stores as shoppers gravitate toward brands at a low-price-point. With high quality goods below wholesale cost, it is easy to see why so many make the OFFPRICE Show a must see.”
The OFFPRICE Show is an order-writing trade show in which retailers can place orders directly from the showfloor and often have the product on the racks of their stores approximately two weeks later.
Nearly all of the fashions and apparel found in the booths throughout OFFPRICE are priced 20-70 percent below wholesale, “making it the best place in the country to find the best value on clothing,” according to show management.
OFFPRICE returns Feb. 14-17 to the Sands Expo in Las Vegas.
