At almost the same time Abercrombie & Fitch (owner of Hollister), Tilly’s, The Buckle, and Genesco (owner of the Journeys chain) released, in early June, 10-Qs for their quarters that ended April 30th.
I was going to do my usual thing and review each one separately. But I was busy, too much time passed and honestly, there’s so much sameness to what our industry’s retailers are saying that I wasn’t sure anybody would want to read four separate reports. Hell, I didn’t even want to.
So what I’ve done is gone through the 10-Qs and collected a few observations and some summary data. It is, I think, enough.
