Rocky Brands posts sales growth
The Ohio-based company reported a net sales increase of 17.5% in the third quarter of 2022, as compared to the same period of last year, amidst an escalation of macroeconomic headwinds
"The third quarter was highlighted by strong sales growth compared to the year-ago period, even as the macroeconomic headwinds pressuring consumer discretionary spending intensified. Our top-line performance underscores the strength of our brand portfolio, the desirability of our innovative, functional footwear, and the important relationships we’ve established with our consumers and retail partners. These important aspects of our business, combined with the actions we've already taken to address cost pressures and reduce expenses, have the Company in a good position to weather this challenging operating environment", commented Brooks, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Rocky Brands.
