NEW YORK — Ann Inc. has a healthy outlook for 2012 with midsingle comp-store sales gains and widening gross margins in the forecast.
“We’re focused on maximizing Ann Taylor and Loft and dipping our toes into international,” Kay Krill, Ann Inc.’s president and chief executive officer, told WWD on Friday after the retailer reported a solid 2011 performance that would have been stronger except the Ann Taylor stores channel dragged down the fourth quarter.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
