Zumiez, the American action sports retail chain that took over Blue Tomato last year, posted net income of $2.5 million in its fiscal first quarter ended last May 4, down by 44.4 percent from a year earlier, due especially to charges of $1.7 million associated with the acquisition of the Austrian-based e-commerce specialist. Total sales grew by 14.3 percent to $148.5 million from the quarter a year ago, but comparable-store sales decreased by 0.7 percent across the group. Instead, Blue Tomato recorded growth of 9 percent in its sales, with a same-store increase of 5 percent. As of May 4, the company operated 503 stores, of which 475 are in the U.S., 22 in Canada, and six in Europe. As previously report, Blue Tomato's door count in Europe is set to double this year. The company plans to open a total of 58 new stores in fiscal 2013, including nine stores in Canada and six in Europe.
