Industry customer Sport Chalet continues to show signs of improvement and posted a profit for its second quarter ended Oct. 2.

 

The retailer said this afternoon that same store sales increased 3.1% in the quarter, while total sales declined 0.9% to $88 million. Sport Chalet said the net sales decline was due to a calendar shift.

 

Online sales rose 18%.

 

Net income reached $0.6 million compared with a loss of $0.5 million in the same period last year.

 

Gross margin improved to 29.2% vs. 28.2% due to a decrease in markdowns.
