Kirkland's Q2 profit slips

Nashville, Tenn. Kirkland's reported Friday that its second-quarter net income dipped 6% to $3.3 million, compared with net income of $3.4 million in the year-ago period.

Revenue rose 2%, to $89.5 million, from $87.7 million. Same-store sales edged up 1%.

The home retailer said customers are looking harder for bargains and they are more cautious because unemployment is high. Merchandise delivery delays and greater freight costs also hurt results.
