Kerusso® Announced on Prestigious Giftbeat Chart as Top 3 T-Shirt Company


Berryville, AR – September 2021

Kerusso®, maker of the Top-Selling Faith-Based Apparel and Accessories, has been recognized by Giftbeat (reported from retailers) as the No. 3 T-shirt company nationwide.

The announcement comes in the September 2021 issue of Giftbeat, the trade publication that tracks sales and pulse of the gift industry.

Kerusso’s founder and CEO, Vic Kennett, is grateful for this recognition from retail partners across the country: “When retailers thrive, we thrive. Brick and mortar retail partnerships drive our success and hitting number 3 for T-shirts in Giftbeat really means something to us, because this chart is based on responses from retail owner/operators in the field. When your top stakeholders offer this kind of recognition, you take notice. We’re grateful for their patronage and consider this achievement a shared success.”

Kennett continues, “It makes sense that Christian-themed T-shirts are making their mark. People are looking for meaning in the products they purchase, even more so amid the challenges so many of us have faced the last two years. Sales of Christian inspirational products are up across the board, and all of our products – apparel, accessories, and gifts – fall into this category.”

Giftbeat is the leading trade publication of the gift industry and utilizes a large network of reporting stores around the country. Stores complete a monthly questionnaire asking them to rank their three top-selling items in eight rotating categories. Stores are then asked to report their top three lines in respective categories.
