 PEMBROKE PINES, Fla., Dec. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Claire's Stores, Inc. (NYSE: CLE) today reported net sales for the four-week month of November increased 11 percent to $23,421,000 from $21,136,000 a year earlier, with same-store sales increasing 4 percent.
 "Sales during the month of November were on plan and represent a strong sell through of seasonal goods at much lower levels of markdown activity due to fewer promotions than the previous year," stated Rowland Schaefer, Claire's chairman and president.
 "Thus, we are generating profitable sales and expect to exit the December month in excellent inventory position," he concluded.
