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.

EVERETT, WA--(Marketwire - 11/03/10) - Zumiez Inc. (NASDAQ:ZUMZ - News) a leading specialty retailer of action sports related apparel, footwear, equipment and accessories, today announced that total net sales for the four-week period ended October 30, 2010 increased 27.3% to $31.4 million, compared to $24.7 million for the four-week period ended October 31, 2009. The Company's comparable store sales increased 21.5% for the four-week period, versus a comparable store sales decrease of 8.9% in the year ago period.

 

Based on better than planned sales and product margins, the Company now expects fiscal 2010 third quarter net income per diluted share of approximately $0.36 to $0.37, an increase from the previously issued guidance of net income per diluted share of approximately $0.28 to $0.30.

 

Rick Brooks, Chief Executive Officer of Zumiez, stated, "Our business has performed well all year and accelerated during the third quarter. The strong sales and margin trends we experienced through September improved in October driven by compelling product and great sales teams. We saw sales increases in all departments and in all regions across the U.S. We are encouraged by the strength of our results and our recent performance confirms our optimism about the long-term prospects of our business. However, as we plan the important fourth quarter and fiscal 2011 we will continue to be cautious reflecting the continuing economic challenges."
