Genesco reports revenue increase
The Nashville-based footwear group has announced net sales increase of 25% in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, reaching 601 million US dollars, as compared to the third quarter of 2021
"Building off a very strong first half of Fiscal 2022, our excellent results this quarter were fuelled by an outstanding back-to-school season in the United States and United Kingdom, reinforcing Journeys' and Schuh's positions as the leading destinations for teen and youth fashion footwear. We were especially pleased with the performance of our stores, as sales in our current fleet were up for the first time since prior to the pandemic. The improvement in traffic trends bolsters our view that teens like to shop in person, making our stores strategic assets that work in tandem with our digital capabilities, serving our customers whenever and wherever they choose to engage with our brands”, commented Mimi E. Vaughn, Genesco board chair, president and chief executive officer.
