 CLAIRE'S STORES REPORTS NOVEMBER SALES
 PEMBROKE PINES, Fla., Dec. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Claire's Stores,

 "Lower overall inventories and a later Thanksgiving holiday combined to produce this disappointing comparison," stated Rowland Schaefer, Claire's chairman and president.
 Schaefer continued, "However, given our improved inventory position, I am confident that markdowns are extremely well controlled and that sales productivity should show gradual improvement," he concluded.
