new research on teen preferences, 5 of 5

ypulse had a great summary the other day of some new research about teen preferences in a bunch of areas. i’ll break it into 5 posts. last up: Retail And Shopping

– During a typical month teens spend an average of $135 across nine product categories

– Nearly half of their spending goes towards clothing and accessories

– For 16 and 17 year-old teens who have a part-time job (minimum of 5 hours per week), their spending across the same nine categories jumps sharply to $264 a month, just about double the average among all teens and about 45% higher than the average for all 16 and 17 year-olds

– For tweens, it’s all about candy, gum and games

– The most visited specialty clothing retailer among teen females is Victoria’s Secret followed closely by Hollister

– Teen males visit American Eagle Outfitters more often than any other specialty retailer followed by Abercrombie & Fitch and Hollister

– Old Navy, for both tween boys and girls, remains the most shopped at specialty clothing retailer by a considerable margin…well ahead of second place The Gap and third place Aeropostale by about 17 share points
