It pertains to my business
It pertains to my business

I’m an avid reader of Shop-Eat-Surf because it’s really the only online newsletter that I have found that is not only industry related, but also because it’s not so “guy-centric.” I find that a lot of the information I read on the site pertains to my business (as a swimwear designer) and keeps me up to date on what other companies and other women in the industry in general are doing which is not only inspiring but also helps me gauge the future direction of my business as well.

I feel privileged to read the Executive Edition because I know I am getting insider industry information before it hits the mainstream media channels. And it’s always good to know what my friends are up to in the industry.

I read Shop-Eat-Surf at every opportunity, and I waited too long to sign up for the Executive Edition. It’s timely, relevant and clearly “from the industry, for the industry.

The Buckle is showing no signs of slowing down.


The Nebraska-based retailer that carries many action sports brands said today that same-store sales rose 28.9 percent in June.


Total men's sales increased 43 percent. Strong categories included denim, woven and knit tops and active apparel.


Total women's sales increased 34 percent. Strong categories included denim, knit tops and active apparel.


Accessories sales rose 29 percent during the month and footwear sales increased 9.5 percent.


The Buckle opened a new store in Chino Hills, Calif., in June, bringing its total store count to 377.

To find out more about why The Buckle does so well, read my previous story with Liz Pierce, below, a retail analyst with Roth Capital Partners. I walked through a The Buckle store with Liz to get her take on the chain's success.
