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.

It's well balanced information that is useful on a daily basis. I'm very satisfied with the Executive Edition. I start each day with SES and a big cup of coffee!

Chick's stores to be converted in Q2

Chick's stores  to be

Dick's Sporting Goods said today it will close two Chick's stores and covert the remaining 12 to Dick's locations in the second quarter.

The company made the announcement in its 2008 fourth quarter and full year earnings press release.

Chick's is an important industry customer that carries a wide selection of junior's and young men's surf and skate apparel in a prominent section at the front of stores.

It appears Dick's is not as committed to carrying as wide a range of brands, judging by the 50 percent off sale on new spring goods from brands such as Ezekiel, DC, Fox, Element, Matix and Honolua that I recently saw at the Dick's store in El Segundo. 

With all Chick's stores being converted to the Dick's format in the spring, it could mean fewer industry orders going forward. 

In the fourth quarter, Dick's total company sales fell 0.4 percent to $1.2 billion, while same-store sales fell 8.6 percent. Same-store sales results did not include the recently acquired Chick's. 

Dick's recorded a $104.4 million loss for the quarter, including impairment charges related to acquisitions. In the same period last year, Dick's posted a $73 million profit.
