Tariffs to Affect “Nice to Have” Product Categories — Chain Store Age

Tariffs are a cause of concern for many consumers, though it should be noted that the product categories most likely to be affected are “nice to have” items, such as luggage and televisions:

“Categories that consumers consider ‘nice to have’ include bicycles, handbags, luggage, watches, games, televisions, and headphones. NPD Group said it is already observing sales reductions in some of the categories where tariffs were introduced in 2018.”
