It's well balanced information that is useful on a daily basis. I'm very satisfied with the Executive Edition. I start each day with SES and a big cup of coffee!

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.

Zumiez reported strong sales for the key back-to-school month of August.

The company said this afternoon that same-store sales rose 9.1% for the month vs. a 12.1% decline in August last year.

Nearly every category posted positive results, including accessories, men’s, boys, footwear and hardgoods.

Junior’s was the only poor performer.

Comps by week were:

1. up 7.2%

2. up 9.8%

3. up 8.9%

4. up 10.3%

The number of transactions rose, while the average dollar per transaction fell.

The South was the top-performing region, with comps up 10%. The West, Midwest and Northeast recorded a 6% comp increase. E-commerce also posted positive results.

CFO Trevor Lang cautioned that the first few weeks of September are also important for back-to-school sales, so August and September results should be taken into consideration when judging the season.

Year to date, same store sales are up 9.2% vs. a 16% decline for the same period last year.

Zumiez operates 396 stores.
