Clothing Retailer Sees Boost With Book Sales

Celebrity favorite retailer Kitson has expanded its offerings from clothing and accessories to include books and has done so with much success. “It’s a huge add-on business,” company founder Fraser Ross told Publishers Weekly. “Clothing has become risky, but our book sales keep growing. The books at Kitson provide entertainment shopping for the whole family.” The store’s book sales topped $1.6 million last year and enjoyed a five-fold increase in sales this January compared to last, according to the trade publication.
