Welcome to Harper Group’s Q3 2021 Buying Guide:
“Let’s Get Together!”
Dear Valued Retailer,
I’m thrilled to present you with the latest issue of Harper Group’s Buying Guide; full of current promotions, new introductions, gift picks and much more.
Our Upcoming Shows
As we enter the 3rd quarter, it’s show season once again! All of us at Harper Group are excited about the opportunity to connect with you in person. We’re pleased to be presenting our industry-leading Harper Group brands at all of our shows this season including Minneapolis Mart, STYLEMAX, our New England Showrooms and NY NOW.
Trends in the Market
As things continue to open up in the economy, buyer interest in products and new introductions from brands has never been greater. Sales have been strong throughout the 2nd quarter with very high demand around our early buy holiday offerings. Our home fragrance and personal care categories continue to trend very strongly and we are seeing increasing growth for our publishing and gift categories. Retailer buying in personal accessories has also accelerated this past quarter.
We continue to invest in technology to assist you virtually, in case you prefer not to travel to the shows this season.
We’ll be live streaming from the NY NOW show and providing you with the ability to book both in-person and virtual appointments in Harper Group’s booth, so you can shop the best and newest brands from wherever you are.
Our Territory Managers are some of the most experienced in the industry and are well equipped with the data and knowledge to present you with informed buying suggestions to enhance your assortment and grow your business.
Thank you for choosing Harper Group. We wish you an incredible 3rd quarter and we hope you enjoy this latest edition of our Buying Guide!
