BY CSA STAFF

Milan, Italy Luxottica Group S.p.A. announced Tuesday a further expansion in the Asia-Pacific region of its Sunglass Hut brand.

Luxottica said Sunglass Hut will enter into The Philippines and expand its existing presence in the Republic of South Africa through two separate agreements.

These agreements follow the recent announcement for the rollout of 65 Sunglass Hut stores within the Myer Department store network in Australia and introduction of Sunglass Hut stores in India in 2008.

Chris Beer, CEO of Luxottica, Asia Pacific & South Africa, said, “Expanding the Sunglass Hut business is part of Luxottica’s global growth strategy across all areas of our business. And there remains great potential for Luxottica’s sun business in the Asia Pacific region.”

The South Africa agreement will roll out an initial 24 Sunglass Hut stores by the end of 2009, bringing the total Sunglass store count in the region to 80 by year end.

In the Philippines, an initial eight stores will be completed in 2010.

BY CSA STAFF

PLANO, Texas JCPenney has launched a new line from Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. The exclusive new line, Olsenboye, will be available for a limited time on jcp.com and in select JCPenney stores beginning Nov. 6, with a full launch set for spring 2010.

“Our juniors customers have grown up with Mary-Kate and Ashley and look to them not only as authentic designers, but also as style icons,” said Liz Sweney, EVP and general merchandise manager of women’s apparel at JCPenney. “The launch of Olsenboye brings aspiration and sophistication to our juniors department, while underscoring our commitment to continue to step up our style and offer our younger customers new, fashion-forward merchandise at affordable prices.”

 

The Olsebboye collection draws inspiration from different cities around the world and includes denim, bottoms, tops, dresses and shoes ranging in price from $20 to $50.

 

To help promote the new line, an Olsenboye “mobile shop” will drive around New York City offering consumers a chance to experience the brand and purchase merchandise before the launch.

Credit trends point to pressured consumers

The company’s receivables declined 6.8% in September compared with a year earlier, partly by design as the company sought to mitigate its exposure to charge-offs and delinquencies. Charge-offs totaled 14.37% in September, while delinquencies totaled 6.17%.
