 LOS ANGELES, Nov. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Carter Hawley Hale Stores Inc. (NYSE: CHH) today reported that same store sales for the month of October decreased 2.6 percent from the prior year period, while total sales, which included four additional stores in 1992, decreased 6.3 percent.
 David L. Dworkin, president and chief executive officer, said, "During the month, we chose to slightly reduce our promotional posture, while continuing to improve merchandising in line with our long-term strategic direction. Sales during the final week were soft, worsened by the effect of the fires in Southern California."
 For the four weeks ended Oct. 30, 1993, total sales were $147.3 million compared with $157.3 million in last year's period. For the 39 weeks ended Oct. 30, 1993, total sales were $1,386.8 million, a decrease of 1.3 percent compared with the $1,405.3 million reported in 1992. On a same store basis, sales increased 1.8 percent for the 39 weeks.
 Same store sales since September 1993 exclude the results from the company's tire centers, as CHH is converting these to a third party operation.
 Carter Hawley Hale Stores Inc. is one of the leading operators of full line department stores in the Western United States with annual sales in excess of $2.1 billion. It operates 83 department stores under the names of The Broadway, Emporium, and Weinstocks.
