New York & Company Inc, a specialty apparel chain with 530 stores, announced that total net sales for the four-week period ended April 29th 2006 increased 12.7 percent to $91.7 million, compared to $81.4 million in the prior year period.

Comparable store sales increased 2.6 percent for the four-week period, as compared to a comparable store sales decrease of 0.7 percent in the prior year period.

Richard Crystal, Chairman and CEO stated: "During the month of April, we experienced a significant improvement in comparable store sales trend from the prior two months. This was due, in large part, to the strength of our new deliveries and increased traffic created by the Easter holiday shift."

In the first fiscal quarter of 2006, the company opened a total of 14 new stores and closed three stores, ending the quarter with 530 stores and 3.3 million selling square feet in operation.
