“Over time, it appears that consumers’ perception of private label or store brand products in comparison with name brands has changed. And, although a survey from The Integer Group shows that fewer consumers currently perceive name brands as being better than private labels in various aspects than did in 2010, the tide appears to be turning back in favor of name brands.
