Many predict that the back to school and holiday seasons will be littered with promotions such as flash sales, double discounts and coupons as traffic remains low. Although recent quarterly earnings reports were mixed, companies seem to be closing unprofitable outlets across the board.

Cotton prices have been on the rise for 3 consecutive months and are expected to keep increasing. Pakistan was the fourth largest exporter of cotton but following their recent floods they have lost around a third of their crops adding more pressure to dwindling worldwide inventories. Furthermore labor costs in china "the world's factory" are on the rise and freight costs are also being hiked up.

These soaring back costs are hitting the industry at a bad time. Companies' margins are already low following an extended period of deep discounts but timid consumers could be easily scared off by the necessary price increases.
