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.

Foot Locker said third quarter earnings were hurt by weak sales in the U.S., though vulcanized lifestyle shoes, including Converse styles, were a bright spot.

U.S. same-store sales declined in the low double digits, each region was weak, and product sales for both genders fell, with women’s sales more challenging than men’s.
