 Commenting on June 1993 sales Julian Seeherman, chairman and chief executive officer said, "The economic climate continues to impact our sales, and June sales, while better than first quarter sales, were disappointing. Sales were much stronger toward the end of the month when the weather was more seasonal. Shoes, mens' and womens' sportswear and accessories were stand out sales performers. Despite the difficult business climate, our inventories are in line, and we are beginning to receive transition merchandise and it is selling satisfactorily. We continue to be cautious regarding business conditions for the fall season and we are planning conservatively."
