Kerusso Moves Further Up Prestigious Top-Sellers List to Top 5 as Sales of Apparel and Inspirational Products Rise.


Berryville, AR – September 2020


Kerusso, the world’s largest Christian apparel company, continues its climb on sales charts as recognized by Giftbeat, the trade publication that tracks sales in the gift industry. The company now holds the No. 5 spot for top selling T-shirt lines in the United States!


Kerusso first made the list in 2018, making a leap from honorable mention the year before to a ranking of No. 8 in the “T-SHIRTS” category. The company continued their climb in 2019, achieving No. 6 nationally, and No. 3 in the South. The company now holds the No. 5 spot for T-shirts nationally. The announcement comes in the September 2020 issue of Giftbeat.

Kennett continues, “In addition to increased demand for meaningful messaging, our retail partners are reporting an increase in T-shirt sales. As more Americans work from home and spend more time in casual settings, quality, comfortable T-shirts are the uniform of choice for many of us. We’re thrilled to be able to share products customers want and need, with encouraging messages they love sharing.”


Kennett says the company is mindful of the unique challenges facing retailers this year.


Our success is tied directly to the success of our retail partners. When they’re successful, we’re successful — it’s that simple. We’ve developed innovative programs to help retailers keep moving forward, and our continued rise on the Giftbeat list is a strong indication that our partnership with brick and mortar retail drives our success.”
