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.

Action sports retailer Zumiez today reported double-digit declines in its comps, but called those results better than expected and said its loss per share will be significantly less than it had earlier projected.

Zumiez saw same-store results for April fall by -13.8 percent, and Q109 results dip by -15.3 percent, the company reported.

Net sales fell by -1.7 percent for the past four weeks, the retailer reported.

Zumiez operates 358 stores, and bills itself as a "core store in the mall."

Here's the company's earnings statement:

Zumiez Inc., a leading specialty retailer of action sports related apparel, footwear, equipment and accessories, today announced that total net sales for the four-week period ended May 2, 2009 decreased 1.7% to $23.8 million, compared to $24.2 million for the four-week period ended May 3, 2008.

The company's comparable store sales decreased 13.8% for the four-week period, versus a comparable store sales increase of 4.1% in the year ago period. Comparable store sales for the first fiscal quarter of 2009 decreased 15.3% vs. a decrease of 0.8% for the first quarter of 2008.

Based primarily on better than expected sales and margins for the first quarter, the Company expects diluted loss per share to be ($0.09) to ($0.08) compared to the previously announced diluted loss per share guidance range of ($0.17) to ($0.13) for the fiscal quarter ending May 2, 2009.
