Gottschalks River Park lifestyle center store sustains strong growth in Sept

Oct '05
Fresno, California, based regional department & specialty store chain Gottschalks announced that same store sales for the month of September 2005 decreased 0.5 percent from the prior year. Total sales for the month increased 1.7 percent to $57.7 million from $56.8 million in September 2004.

On a year-to-date basis, same store sales increased 0.9 percent from the comparable period of fiscal 2004. Total sales on a year-to-date basis increased 1.7 percent to $403.0 million compared to $396.4 million in the same period of the prior year.

Reflecting the opening of the River Park lifestyle center store in August 2005 and the potential effect on other Fresno stores, the Company's comparable store base for September 2005 and the fiscal year to date period is exclusive of all stores located in Fresno. The Company plans to continue to report same store sales exclusive of Fresno stores through September 2006.

As planned, Gottschalks opened a furniture and home store in Pocatello, Idaho during the month and also closed its Factoria Mall store in Seattle, Washington at the end of September. The Company does not anticipate any material costs associated with the closure of its Factoria Mall store. The Company continues to evaluate each of its store locations based on individual performance in an effort to increase store contribution.

Gottschalks is a regional department store chain, currently operating 64 department stores and 6 specialty apparel stores in six western states, including California (39), Washington (11), Alaska (6), Oregon (2), Nevada (2) and Idaho (3). Gottschalks offers better to moderate brand-name fashion apparel, cosmetics, shoes, accessories and home merchandise.
