Western Chief Adds New Characters for Spring ’16

Register for the Feb. 17 webinar, De-Risking Supply Chains Through Nearshoring, today to learn how to realize the benefits of localizing supply chains from factories that are helping brands successfully produce in the U.S.

Blockbuster movies mean a blockbuster selling season for retailers stocked with the right licensed character gear for children.

Washington Shoe Company National Sales Manager Mike Buxton said character product is a major portion of Western Chief’s children’s business. To prepare for the March 2016 release of “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” Western Chief is introducing a new Spring ’16 Batman and Superman rain gear set at FFANY. The company also added a Finding Dory collection for the release of “Finding Dory” in June 2016, and new Spider-Man rain products for the July 2017 release of “Ultimate Spider-Man.”

And because “Frozen” is still golden at retail, Western Chief is bowing a new collection of Elsa- and Anna-themed rain boots and jackets, as well as a playful Olaf set for boys and girls, for Holiday. “Frozen 2” hits theaters in 2018.
