Mothers Work Same-Stores Up
Philadelphia Mothers Work Inc., which operates A Pea in the Pod and other maternity-apparel stores, said Thursday that November same-store sales rose 0.6%. The retailer said same-store sales were helped by a calendar shift of more Fridays during the month compared with last year.
Total November sales fell 5.3% to $44 million from $46.5 million last year. The sales decline is mainly due to the company's closure of its remaining leased departments within Sears stores in June.
