US Boomer retailer

Christopher & Banks (CBK) is all about female baby boomers, with three retail brands.

The Christopher & Banks brand is the flagship, positioned as a "missy moderate" concept. (target customer is 50 years old, with an average household income of $82,000)

The C.J. Banks brand is designed for the same customer, except she is a ‘plus’ size.

Acorn is a lifestyle-driven concept for more affluent boomers, with household income between $80,000 and $100,000.
