NEW YORK — Charlotte Russe Holding Inc, a specialty retailer focused on younger women, reported a 17.7 percent rise in its third-quarter earnings as cost controls offset weaker sales.
The San Diego-based fashion company said income increased to $5.6 million, or 24 cents a diluted share, for the three months ended June 29, a penny below Wall Street’s expectations. Profits were $4.8 million, or 70 cents, in last year’s third quarter. Total sales ramped up 30 percent to $102 million from $78.4 million, but decreased 0.3 percent on a comparable-store basis.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
