MORE ON WORK STOPPAGES AND THE HOLIDAY SHOPPING SEASON
Published October 14, 1994
The baseball strike and the "near-lockout" in hockey are causing "big problems for the sports card and T-shirt industries. And unless something happens quickly in one or both sports, the season to be jolly could be anything but." Some sports retailers admit if the work stoppages continue, "Christmas is going to hurt." Everyone agrees the labor strife "is causing short-term problems, but industry officials say it's too early to tell what will happen to the market in the long run" (Jim Byers, TORONTO STAR, 10/14).
