The apparel cataloger claims that the decrease in sales was due to a planned reduction in catalog pages mailed and that it had planned the year as a transitional period in which it reduced unprofitable mailings, reduced expenses, and liquidated excess inventory in preparation for new merchandise.


Sales for the core business segment were $780 million, down 9 percent from the previous year.
