Despite National Numbers, Seattle Area Discretionary Spending Appears to Be Growing Strong

BELLEVUE, WA--(Marketwire - March 21, 2008) - A recent CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll released yesterday was rife with bad news about the slowing national economy. 75% of respondents said they reduced discretionary spending on leisure activities, 61% are delaying major purchases and 30% are cutting back on basic necessities such as food and medicine.

Local economic news in the Puget Sound area has not been as dire. In proving this is true, discretionary spending has actually increased over last year's numbers in certain areas.

Not too many products or services beat Botox, Restylane, or general cosmetic surgery, when it comes to the definition of "discretionary." Yet despite the gloomy economic forecast, business and patient flow at Naficy Plastic Surgery & Rejuvenation Center has increased by 50% over last year's numbers -- and in some categories, closer to 60%.

These statistics are good indicators of the strength of our local economy -- despite all the gloom and doom in the national media.
