第162句:卡氏公司的成功(2020何凯文每日一句)

今天的句子:

Carter’s owes much of its recent success, analysts say, to a deal it forged with Target in the early 2000s. Instead of selling its existing line in Target stores, executives offered to create a spinoff. “Target customers tend to shop frequently, so constant newness is important,” said Kendra Baker Krugman. An exclusive line for Walmart followed soon after. In 2017, the company created Simple Joys by Carter’s for Amazon Prime to reach more affluent and “digital savvy” millennials. As a result, the retailer’s biggest competitors — Walmart, Target and Amazon — are also its largest customers.
