Christmas Season Boosts Sales to Record Levels By PHIL THOMAS AP Business Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Turtleneck sweaters for men, swords and musical whisky bottles were an instant hit in the .shopping avalanche that swept the nation's stores this Christmas season, boosting sales on the whole to record levels. Both suburban shopping cen- ters and large downtown department stores across the nation generally reported record or near record sales, although there were some soft spots where sales did not meet expectations, an Associated Press spot survey found Wednesday. "We were not disappointed, but we were not elated," said Walter Berquist, president of (Bullocks Department Stores in Sicily: Assembly Line for Wigs Delicious spread: cooked shrimp (ground) mixed with | butter, mustard, ground mace and sherry plus salt and pepper. Chill the mixture before I serving. By PATRICIA KING NEA Beauty Editor NEW YORK - (NEA) - In the world of women in general and beauty in particular, little caused as great a commotion as wigs and hairpieces. Not only have they become big beauty news but big business as well. Just how this big, yet rela- ;ively young, business can af- :ect the economy and way of life of people thousands of miles away from the women who wear the products their deft fingers create is a rather fascinating story. One company with a factory in Barcellona, Sicily, employs over 400 people, mostly young girls, 13 to 20 years old. At 13 they start their apprenticeship, learning all aspects of wig-making and by the time they reach 20, they usually get married. The worldwide demand for hair has become so great that the supply can no longer be met by women selling a lifetime's growth of hair to a factory. To meet their demand, peddlers called "capiddari" roam the countryside, collecting hair from the peasant women. Rather quaintly, these buyers barter with lace- and dishes rather than currency. After collecting a.substantial amount, they sell it to the "grossista". (wholesaler) who brings the supply to the factory. At first the hair is unraveled and separated into different colors. Then a miniature bed of nails separates it into different lengths, and then it's put through the washing process. The hair is washed once in hot water with soap and salts and once in shampoo. From this point, 75 per cent of the hair dyed into 68 colors. Three types of wigs are made — handmade, semi - machine- made and machine - made. For handmade wigs, each strand of hair must be individually sew|ed into a fine silk base. For I machine - made wigs, the hair jis fed onto a sewing machine I that sews and resews the hair |into a thread called a weft, which is sewed in spiral fashion onto a silk net cap. The semimachine"-"made is wefted but hand '- finished. Barcelona was originally selected as a factory by Vincent Napoli, (president of Lisa Wigs and Wiglets) because it was mainly populated by females. The only area of work in Barcellona was in agriculture. The women would work a 10-hour day in the fields for as little as 600 lire to 1,000' lire a day ($1-51.60). With the arrival of the factory, jobs became available at the unheard of $5 a day, including government insurances and pension taxes. When Napoli went to Barcellona U> form the factory he discovered how suspicious Sicilians are of foreigners. And anyone who is not of their village is a foreigner. It was only because he spoke the dialect that he was able to gain the people's confidence and convince the families that he wanted to start a factory and needed girls who knew how to sew. He not only | had to convince the girls' parents but also their brothers, uncles, aunts and cousins. Napoli said, "It was more difficult and time - consuming winning the'confidence of these i people than getting the factory started," :. SALE •RememDei f^ay Your Paper Boy i Los Angeles, in a mlddle-of-the- Iroad report. "It was not a sensational Christmas season." However, Maurice Cohen, president of Lechmereo Sales, a Boston discount chain, called it "The best year yet. The past week it exploded with peopla buying beyond our expectations. In New York City sales wer« reported 3 to 6 per cent above, last year's totals. And a spokesman for Burdine's Department Stores of Miami, Fla., said, "We anticipated, a big Christmas and are realiz-. ing it. The general economy is pretty good and sales are fol» ". lowing along." Richard H. Rich, board chairman of Rich's, Inc., of Atlanta, said some had felt it would be hard to equal the records i racked up in Christmas of 196f» But, Rich said, sales this December are running 5 to.6 per cent ahead of 1966 with branch I stores doing slightly better than those located downtown. Improved sales also were reported by stores in Phoenix, Ariz., Cleveland, Ohio, Kansas City, Little Rock, Ark., and Pittsburgh. Zale Corp., a Dallas retail j jewelry chain, reported its sales jfor the week prior to Christmas were a record $22 million, compared to ?17,900,000 a year ear- jlier. Some Chicago and Omaha stores reported sales were not what they had expected. ; J. • Carl Campbell, general merchandising manager of Chi- j cage's Carson Pirie Scott & Co., i said, "Business is better than last year, but we're not up to planned growth." i John Diesing, vice president of Brandies, Omaha's largest I department store, said sales increased at his firm's outlying shopping center outlets but de- erased at the main downtown store. Uifls for men were among the best sellers. In Atlanta it was unusual items such as swords and musical whisky bottles. In Los Angeles, the biggest item on the market was the turtleneck sweater.
