This is good for the retailer as it means that their bags are popular with current customers which in turn would suggest they will keep returning to the store, but at the same time it will increase awareness to other consumers which should provide more visitors to the store and more importantly higher revenues. Again this is another reason for retailers taking their time and making good investment to make the bag of excellent quality and attractive to the shopper.
