PGD-BackToSchoolDesk-webStudents soon will be headed back to school (BTS), and more than one-third (37%) of consumers already have begun their BTS shopping—up from the 29% who started at this time last year. Roughly 90% of households indicated a selection of brick-and-mortar retail as a shopping venue for the BTS season, according to a new International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC)-Goldman Sachs survey conducted this month by Opinion Research Corp. 

Consumers will shop in a variety of places for their BTS items this year. While discounters are still expected to be the winners, the number of households selecting this shopping venue dropped from 90% last year to 80% this year. For all 2014 BTS shopping venues, discounters represented a 23.7% share of where consumers will shop. Many retailers in regional malls and open-air centers should see increased activity during this season.
