Last year at this time we were all in love with sharks. This year, it's a little different.
It's hard to predict trends, isn't it? Last year, at this time, everyone was talking about sharks. Last year, at this time, anything with a shark on it sold like mad. It was an unstoppable, unprecedented shark frenzy that seemed like it would never end.
And now? Where are those sharks now? They're nowhere. They're locked up in a prop closet that hasn't been opened for ten months or more.
So when our buying team looked at last year's metrics and said "Sharks! Sharks always do well after the Big Game!" we couldn't really figure out how to tell them that sometimes trends of the past aren't always trends of the present. But hey, at least this Shark Vacuum is useful for cleaning your carpets and floors and such. Even if the idea of a shark is a little, well, last year.
But who knows? It could be time for shark retro.
