Reactions & Comments:

 

About 22 percent of clothing spending is in Pope county.  76.6% of respondents purchase less than 40 percent of their clothing in Pope county.  There is little clothing purchased in the county across all demographic groups.

 

People near Glenwood are a bit more likely to purchase clothing than those living in other areas without such stores.

 

Selection and competitive pricing are factors that are related to spending more locally on clothing.
