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.

There is no better publication that I am aware of that is so accurate and on top of any news and developments in our industry. I personally recommend it to many people that want to know and understand more about our industry. For the most part, shop-eat-surf.com gets the stories first. As a matter of fact, I require all the executives in our company to read it.

The Buckle's profit soars 43.5 percent in Q1

The Buckle continues to outperform every retailer in America. The company, a large customer for action sports brands, said this morning that its net income rose 43.5 percent to $26.9 million in the quarter ended May 2.

Net sales rose 24.6 percent to $199.7 million, while same-stores sales rose 17.7 percent. 

The Buckle's run of great results shows no signs of slowing down. I was in a Buckle store this week and it was one of the few stores at the shopping center that was busy. 

The Buckle ended the quarter with 392 stores.
