Nov '13
The Cato Corporation reported sales for the four weeks ended November 2, 2013 of $66.7 million, a 4% increase over sales of $64.3 million for the four week period ended October 27, 2012.  Same-store sales for the month increased 3%.

"October sales benefited from some cooler weather during the month relative to the prior year.  However, we continue to expect a difficult sales environment through the fourth quarter.  We now estimate that third quarter earnings per diluted share will be in the range of $.13 to $.15 versus $.16 last year and up from our previous guidance of the higher end of the range of $.02 to $.09," commented John Cato, Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer.   

During the month of October, the Company opened six stores and relocated one store.  New stores opened in Flint, MI, Lee's Summit, MO, Durham, NC, Norman, OK, Altoona, PA and Irving, TX.  The relocated store is in Morganton, NC.

Year-to-date, the Company has opened 16 new stores, relocated four stores, and closed eight stores.  As of November 2, 2013, the Company operated 1,318 stores in 32 states, compared to 1,306 stores in 31 states as of October 27, 2012.

The Company will release third quarter financial results on Thursday, November 21, 2013.
