  • The Company opened 19 new stores and closed 3 stores during the first half of fiscal 2012.

Allen Weinstein, Body Central's President and CEO, stated: "Our second quarter sales and earnings were in line with our revised guidance. We believe that the shortfall in our retail business was due not only to our own missteps but also to the challenging retail environment.

“During the second quarter, we have reduced spring and summer inventory levels, began to flow fall merchandise into our stores, continued our test and reorder process and better-aligned inventory levels with sales expectations. Our direct business has had solid gains and we continue to make progress on executing several company-wide merchandising and operating initiatives.
