NEW YORK -- The mall still reigns as the preferred venue for back-to-school shopping among parents and teen-agers, a new survey shows.
The 2001 American Express Retail Index showed that 77 percent of teen-agers would rather scour a mall for their new clothes and school supplies. Of the parents polled, 63 percent also said malls were their top choice for the annual rite.
The survey, based on a telephone canvass of 700 parents and students ages 12 to 17, also sought to determine the most popular clothing brands among teens. For boys, they were Tommy Hilfiger, Nike, Adidas, Polo/Ralph Lauren and FUBU. Among girls, the top five were Old Navy, The Gap, Tommy Hilfiger, Abercrombie & amp; Fitch and Express/The Limited.
