What’s getting the most shopper attention this holiday season?
“Jackets, vests and work pants by Carhartt are probably our hottest-selling items this year,” said Jack Little, merchandise manager of Swain’s stores in Port Angeles, Sequim and Port Townsend.
“Of course, toys and Christmas decorations always sell well.”
Other big sellers are jackets by Columbia Sportswear and girl’s clothing by Roxy.
Outdoor sports equipment is also popular, including fishing equipment and snow sleds by Wham-O.
“This is steelhead fishing season, so we’re seeing quite a few people buying rods, reels and lures for their loved ones,” said Rob Hoffman, fishing specialist.
“And guys are buying GPS systems to help them mark hunting and fishing spots so they can find their way back.”
Hoffman said Global Positioning Systems by Magellan are a favorite because the design is user-friendly.
