Forty-one percent of American shoppers now describe themselves as frequent store brand buyers, up from 36% just five years ago, and nearly one out of three consumers say that they are more likely now than a year ago to buy private label. Moreover, the popularity of store brands in supermarkets is having a halo effect on home/office, household, and DIY products.
Where do Americaâ€™s retailers and wholesalers go to source for their private label programs? The answer is PLMAâ€™s annual private label trade show.
Weeks & Leo is a member of PLMA.

Iowans Carl and Edith Weeks (founders of Weeks & Leo) built Salisbury House between 1923 and 1928. True to the history and design of the King's House, Salisbury House reflects the Tudor, Gothic, and Carolean periods of architecture. The mansion contains authentic 16th century English oak, English flint work, and rafters that date back to the time of Shakespeare. Salisbury House is filled with original furnishings and a collection of rare objects of art, paintings, tapestries, books, and letters that belonged to the Weeks family.
Salisbury House has been called a "national treasure" by the National Trust For Historic Preservation and was featured on the national television series "America's Castles" on the A & E Cable Network and Home and Garden Television's "Christmas Castles."
