However, their share of the store-operations pie, the percent of retailer respondents that describe themselves in that category, has diminished considerably since last year, from 54 percent to 35 percent.  PBM’s Strategic Insights team fielded Gifts and Decorative Accessories’ annual online survey to gift retailers in March 2017, which gathered responses from 54 stores across the United States.
