"We've seen that people are anxious about buying their school clothes," said Candy Nichols, owner of Candy Nichols and The Loft, which sell clothing for infants through middle-school-aged children. Nichols added that several popular items have already begun to sell out.
"Cashmere has come down in price and it's really comfortable," said Suzanne Zarrilli, the co-owner of WishList, where shelves feature Juicy Couture sweat suits, Miss Sixty jeans and retro Lacoste shirts - all big hits with teenage girls.
"I really like the new Juicy velour suits, the long sleeve Lacoste shirts and the new Juicy cashmere scarves," said Brooke Richman, 17, as she sifted through the shelves at WishList looking for a pair of black pants
