- A bright spot for some retailers this back-to-school shopping season will be school uniforms as more schools tighten up dress codes or go with a standard uniform.
- Amid forecasts for lower overall back-to-school spending this year, parents are expected to increase spending on uniforms.
- Specialized shops inside of stores and online promotions are becoming more common from retailers such as Wal-Mart (WMT -2.6%), Target (TGT -1.5%), Lands' End, Old Navy (GPS -1.6%), and Staples (SPLS -2.8%). Niche players such as LT Apparel's FrenchToast.com are also active in the category.
