Readers Say
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.

Wholesale still weak for American Apparel

American Apparel said this morning that sales fell 2.9% to $150.3 million in the third quarter.

Net income was $4.2 million vs. $2.3 million during the same period last year.

In Q3 of 2008, however, net income was negatively impacted by stock-based compensation expenses.

Excluding those expenses, net income in Q3 of 2009 declined 79% compared to the same period last year.

Retail sales rose 3.7% to $101 million. Same-store sales declined 16% in constant currency. The company said the decline is largely attributable to the cannibalization of sales when it opens new stores in existing markets.

The company has opened 50 new stores in the past 12 months and ended the quarter with 276 stores.

Wholesale sales fell 14.5% to $40.2 million.

Online sales declined 12.5% to $10.4 million.

For the full year, American Apparel expects sales to range between $540 million to $555 million.
