Sporting Goods and Footwear Retailers Report Mixed Results for Black Friday and the Thanksgiving Holiday Weekend

(November 28th, 2012,  Boulder, CO) — A Leisure Trends Group survey of sporting goods and footwear retailers conducted this week found that two out of three retailers reported similar or better sales on Black Friday and the holiday weekend compared to last year. The survey, fielded to Cycling, Independent Shoe, Outdoor, Run, Snowsports, and General Sporting Goods retailers, yielded responses from 203 merchants representing 700+ locations across the country, and was dominated by Specialty retailers. Similar to last year, about 51% of retailers reported sales growth; unfortunately more retailers also experienced declines — 33.5% this year vs. 25% last year.
