Little Guys Rule!
by David Hachmeister
August saw other products rise a robust 14 percent! They are on a pretty strong winning streak dating back six months now.
Stamps are still trailing along the way. Remember, we are last in and last out of a recession. They fell about seven percent against the two-year August average, but by just a small fraction of one percent against last August. It is interesting to note that while the industry as a whole has been down, small shops have actually seen rises in six of the last 13 months. They have also beaten their larger peers 12 of the last 13 months, including the last six consecutive months. We are not exactly sure what this means, but score one to the little guys!
