October DtC Shipments Break Monthly Record
Direct-to-consumer shipments hit a high water mark in October with a value of $222 million, beating the year-ago number by 13%. The previous monthly record was $200 million in November 2011. In each of the last two years November sales beat October sales and were the highest of the year, so if that trend continues November will break the record again.
