GameStop December sales fall; appoints exec

BY CSA STAFF

Grapevine, Texas GameStop Corp. Thursday said its nine-week holiday same-store sales fell 8.6%. The company said total sales during the period hit $2.86 billion, flat when compared with the previous year.

Sales momentum was impacted by the global economic slowdown and shortages of key products, including the New Super Mario Bros. Wii game, the Nintendo Wii and Sony’s PlayStation 3 consoles, CEO Daniel DeMatteo said in a statement Thursday.

In addition, video-game hardware sales fell 8% due to console price cuts and a drop in unit sales on a year-over-year basis.

In other news, GameStop Friday announced the appointment of Michael Mauler to executive VP GameStop International. This appointment will encompass the operational leadership of GameStop’s locations in 15 countries outside of North America.

Mauler was formerly the company’s senior VP supply chain and international support.

LAS VEGAS Sears announced that it will introduce two new online shopping tools — TvMatchMaker.com and CameraMatchMaker.com — at the International Consumer Electronics Show, taking place in Las Vegas, Jan. 7 to 10.

TVMatchMaker.com and CameraMatchMaker.com, according to the company, help customers find their perfect TV or camera by asking them a series of compatibility questions to find their perfect match. TvMatchMaker.com users interactively answer questions about their home and viewing habits. CameraMatchMaker.com users answer questions about the types of pictures they shoot, while addressing photography concerns such as red-eye reduction and blurred images.

“We know that there are a lot of confusing questions to consider when purchasing home electronics, especially for new televisions and digital cameras.

BBBY posts strong quarter

BY CSA STAFF

In a strong earnings report that could be a sign of improving demand for spending on the home, Union, N.J.-based Bed Bath & Beyond posted third quarter earnings of $151.3 million, up 72.5% from $87.7 million in the same quarter last year.

Sales for the quarter ended Nov. 28 were $1.975 billion, up from 10.8% from $1.78 billion in the prior-year quarter. Comparable store sales in the quarter increased 7.3%.

 

Bed Bath & Beyond had a total of 1,086 stores, including 960 Bed Bath & Beyond stores.

 

The consumer continues to face challenges, said Leonard Feinstein, co-founder and co-chariman. Still, he described the company as “cautiously optimistic.” It opened 16 new Bed Bath & Beyond stores in the quarter, and closed one Bed Bath & Beyond store.

The company’s third quarter results exceeded even internal expectations, said CEO Steven Temares. Challenges persist, but the retailer’s fundamental strategy remains unchanged. He described the strategy as offering a broad mix of products at low prices and with high levels of service.
