 "We continue to emphasize the quality of sales as opposed to the quantity of sales by taking fewer markdowns than in the previous year," stated Rowland Schaefer, Claire's chairman and president. "Meanwhile, our lean inventory levels leave us well-positioned for the important Back-to-School selling season and based upon early testing of seasonal goods we expect sales to improve with the arrival of new merchandise beginning this month," he concluded.
