Frederick's of Hollywood Group Inc. announced the financial results for its second quarter of fiscal 2014.
 
"We are moving ahead with our strategy to maximize higher performing retail locations, which will allow us to reduce overall costs and effectively utilize limited resources. Over the past three months, we have closed 15 underperforming stores and one additional store at the end of its lease.  This activity will continue into April, as we plan to close an additional two stores," stated Thomas Lynch, the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
