ABSTRACT
Home textile suppliers based in Southern California are unaffected by wildfires that spread throughout the area in the last quarter of 2003. Although the fires spared the suppliers' operations and facilities in the area, they remain uncertain of how the fires will affect sales in the region. However, industry leaders are confident that the national rebound in sales should be strong enough to absorb expected regional losses. Furthermore, the industry responded to the crisis by participating in relief campaigns and by donating part of their revenues while developing programs to work around the inconvenience caused by the fires on their operations.
