I am a big fan of Tiffany and her team as well as an avid reader of Shop-Eat-Surf. I shop, I eat, I surf -- I should pay.

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.

The Easter shift tempered same store sales at Zumiez in April, though the action sports retailer still reported positive comps.

Same store sales rose 2.1%. Last year, same store sales declined 13.8% during the same period.

The busy pre-Easter shopping week shifted into March this year, which made March sales extra strong and weakened April sales.

Same store sales for March and April combined rose 8.3% vs. a 16.1 fall during March and April last year.

Same store sales by week:

1. down 13.2%

2. up 12.1%

3. up 6.8%

4. up 7%

Comps at stores in the West rose 3%, were flat in the Midwest, fell 3% in the South and dropped 5% in the Northeast.

Positive categories: men’s, accessories

Weak categories: hardgoods, juniors, footwear and boys.
