Tuesday 3 May 2005

For Immediate Release

“Von Dutch” tumbles to bottom of Trade Me Top 20

Two new fashion entrants threaten to knock Von Dutch out of the Top 20 search results according to the latest Trade Me figures.

Von Dutch fell from number 12 number 19, hanging in the Top 20 with 17,361 searches. Designer labels Gucci and Karen Walker debuted at 18 and 20 to flank the former top performer. The pressure is on as Von Dutch gets the squeeze from both sides - could this be its last appearance in the Top 20?

Meanwhile, Toyota continues to lead the pack with 82,2875 searches last month. Performance amongst other car manufacturers remained steady, with the exception of Holden who dropped from number 4 to number 9 with 29,364 searches.

The full list of the top 20 search items for April is listed below.

The latest Neilsen//NetRatings figures show Trade Me had over 1.5 million unique NZ visitors in March. It has over 1,000,000 New Zealand members and more than 350,000 current listings.
