Children clothing are become more and more important in the recent years because the country 's fertility rate booms (Askbaby, 2010). Primark increased its market share in the children clothing which could help in boosting the whole sale (Fletcher, 2007). According to Smithers,

Globally, the energy drink industry has gone from a $3.8-billion business in 1999, to a $27.5-billion
