New car sales are down, as are Big Red Car Bows sales

New car sales are down and so are sales for car bows

There are many ways to measure how many cars, trucks, and SUVs are sold annually. One way to measure those new car sales includes how many oversized bows dealers buy for decorations. Some bow vendors report that sales have plummeted this year, indicating that fewer people are buying new cars or sport utility vehicles with bows on top.

New car sales have dropped from 17 million to 13.7 million in recent years

Cox Automotive, the parent company of Kelley’s Blue Book, estimates that Americans are buying fewer vehicles. The company that sells those oversized bows and ribbons, King Size Bows, agrees with that estimate. Fewer cars pulling out of lots means fewer bows to adorn the hood or roof. Joe Pinsker of the Wall Street Journal said: “Manufacturers and sellers of auto ornaments, the oversized decorations that are attached to hoods and roofs, are reporting a sharp drop in business this holiday season.”
