History of shopping l.jpg
History of Shopping Model

  • Local seamstresses and tailors made clothing to order

    • Mostly domestic, usually not much “stock” on hand

    • Sometimes sold at town shops

  • Exporting - 1831, George Opdyke, later Mayor of New York, began the manufacture of clothing on Hudson Street, which he sold largely through a store in New Orleans.

    • Increased Southern Trade Market

  • Mass Production – 1851 – Singer sewing machine was invented

    • Strong enough to sew leather – shoemakers used quickly

    • Larger scale production of clothing products was made possible

    • Cheaper labor costs because machine saved time

  • More Choices

    • 1856 – first synthetic dye invented – more color options

History of Shopping Model

  • Catalogs introduced in 1872 by Montgomery Ward

    • Sears introduced their catalog in 1888

  • Department Stores – Bloomingdale’s was founded in 1872

    • Choices led to the growth of specialized clothing stores & more chain/department stores

  • Malls – the first mall was built in 1922 in Edina, Minnesota

    • Another outlet for purchasing the latest fashions

  • Internet stores began around 1995

    • Sales from Brick and Mortars impacted greatly

Catalogs today l.jpg
Catalogs Today Model

  • Sales over the internet have increased three-and-a-half times in the past four years, while turnover from catalogues has declined

    • What such surveys do not fully take into account is the impact that catalogues have on online sales.

  • Retailers that still carry and distribute catalogs are making them thinner and are still investing in them to spark customer interest and direct them to purchasing and browsing online.

  • Limited size and color selections in stores force people to order online or use catalogs, especially for plus sizes and petites.
