Sporting Goods Spending

June 22, 1989|Clipboard researched by Susan Davis Greene and Rick VanderKnyff / Los Angeles Times; Graphics by Doris Shields / Los Angeles Times

In the third quarter of 1988, July through September*, county residents spent almost $61.4 million in sporting goods stores. By way of comparison, that's more than twice what was spent for men's clothes ($25 million) but less than half as much as went for home furnishings ($144 million).

Compared to our neighbors, Orange County ranked second in spending. Los Angeles County residents spent more than twice as much; those in Riverside, San Diego and San Bernardino, less.
