Wholesale Prices

Station Population

Demonstrating volatility this year when it briefly plunged into inversion due to Harvey's flooding, the branded rack discount under DTW so far this year is half what it was two decades ago.

How the spread skinnied, an update of the thriving J-DTW class, and a view by brand of two major markets, are featured in this issue.
