NEW YORK — Ann Taylor Stores didn’t set the fashion world on fire during the second quarter, but it managed a 16.3 percent profit increase anyway.
“Ann Taylor’s positive comparable-store sales for the quarter were driven by strategically managed promotions that helped optimize selling of product that continued to border on being too safe, lacking color and sophistication,” AT chairman J. Patrick Spainhour said in a statement.
