High hopes for comfort, restoration, trend products
The fourth quarter is always the busiest season for As Seen on TV products. Products in the $9.99 to $19.99 range are expected to generate the most movement in the drug channel.
Jordan Pine, president of SciMark Corp. anticipated solid sales in comfort products (Ahh Bra, Miracle Socks), restoration products (Furniture Fix repair system, Flex Seal liquid rubber) and trend products (Snap-On Feathers).
He said he’s also seeing a focus on products for kids. “The huge success of Pillow Pets last holiday season has everyone trying their hand at this category,” he said.
