Executive Edition is a must have
Executive Edition is a must have

Before Shop-Eat-Surf, there were two sites I paid for premium content on. One is Surfline, the other is the Wall Street Journal. One is about all things surf, the other, the best business content site in the world. Shop-eat-surf is the intersection of those two worlds. Shop-Eat-Surf provides everything from coverage of events, people, brands and trends. However, beyond the Executive Edition "wall" is more meaty analysis and interpretation of financial statements, business models and brand philosophies; why certain brands and companies are succeeding, where others aren't. The Executive Edition is a must have read if the business of surf and action sports are on your radar screen.

Weak U.S. sales hurt Foot Locker in Q3

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.

European comps were flat and showed much improvement in October.

Foot Locker Canada declined in the low single digits, while the Asia/Pacific region posted a mid-single digit comp store gain.

Overall, total company sales declined 7.3% to $1.2 billion.

Foot Locker recorded a net loss of $6 million vs. a profit of $24 million a year earlier.

Excluding an impairment charge, the company had net income of $16 million in the third quarter of 2009.

Foot Locker owns 3,601 stores around the world.
